I use rsync to backup and synchronize network shares and my computer. I have this figured out.
The problem is, when using rsync to transfer files, it uses all the bandwidth it can. I want to cap it's speed, so that I can use my connection for other things.
Specifically, right now I am listening to Last.FM, but it keeps cutting out, as rsync is saturating local connection.
It sounds unlikely, but in this case my LAN really is as fast as my internet (10 megabit for both, yay university!). Either way, I have no extra bandwidth while rsync is running. Any ideas?
Oh, btw, specifically I am running Ubuntu 9.04.
