I have a Raspberry Pi running Raspbian acting as a 24x7 downloading server. I am now trying to utilize it with SiriProxy but it fails as it needs to upload/download data from Apple servers which fails because we have downloads running in background not leaving enough datapipe for Siriproxy to work as expected. I studied trickle but it is not what I need as it permanently limits the bandwidth for an application, I need something which will work like nice command prioritizing network for Siriproxy only when needed.
