I use Debian 6 - 64bit and I've been using "trickle" for limiting my download/uploads speed on different kinds of programs like "wget" or "ftp". But now I want to reduce speeds for different kinds of network scripts. They are basically files that run as:
I tried using trickle on this but it didn't limit the speed as I checked through iftop, although it didn't give an error as well.
trickle -u 1000 ./Executable.script # Didn't work
The script is basically a status script that would check status of different network applications and they would then reply with the result. The upload is what matters here. How should I limit this?
