Traffic Shaping ===============

Module: core

.. meta::
:keywords: lighttpd, bandwidth limit, traffic shaping

.. contents:: Table of Contents

Description ===========

Starting with 1.3.8, lighttpd supports limiting the bandwidth for
a single connection or config context like a virtual host or a URL.

Options =======

limit the throughput for each single connection to the given
limit in kbyte/s

default: 0 (no limit)

limit the throughput for all connections to the given limit
in kbyte/s

if you want to specify a limit for a special virtual server
use: ::
$HTTP["host"] == "" {
server.kbytes-per-second = 128
which will override the default for this host.
default: 0 (no limit)

Additional Notes ================

Keep in mind that a limit below 32kb/s might actually limit the traffic to 32kb/s. This
is caused by the size of the TCP send buffer.
