With Azureus/Vuze, can we set an upload/download rate limit depending on the time of day ?

If not, do you know a torrent client allowing this ? Client must be available on Linux.


After reading the answer, I learned that you can install plugins for Azureus/Vuze. There is one about scheduling. I've tried to install it but I got a NullPointerException

Transmission (Mac OS X and Unix/Linux with GTK+ or Qt GUI) has a "speed limit" mode that can be scheduled.

Screenshot is from Mac OS X Version, but I believe they have that feature on all platforms.

I used it 2 years ago and I didn't notice about this feature. – Luc M Jan 2 '11 at 20:22
@Luc You're welcome. Transmission development is quite active, it's possible that this feature is more recent than that. – Daniel Beck Jan 2 '11 at 20:29

it's still in alpha stage, but µTorrent has a linux client that allows scheduling of rate limits here
