Limit upload speed

#1 Postby bee199 » Oct 29, 2012 6:41 am

Hello Guys

I have searched this forum but could not find what I was looking for.

I need to limit upload speeds for users, is this possible?

Some people get super fast upload speeds while others get speeds of 40kbps.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks

Reducing upload speeds will limit each user to lets say 1000Kbps max.

Without limits some users are uploading at 40,000kbps (Remote Upload) and then other users get 100kbps.

if i were you, i wouldn't do it; instead add more servers

you will end up with more complaints, if you cap max upload speed

I dont care about getting complaints.

I am already spending over $4000 on servers per month. I do not want to spend more at this time.

Can someone with a valid answer please try to help me out?

i'm afraid that is not possible.
i suggest enable remote upload only for premium users.

Invest in NGINX.

Users may be getting slow upload speeds because their internet speed is slow or considering their location. The best thing to do is cap downloading in my opinion, there's probably a good reason why nobody has discussed capping upload speeds.

nginx can only limit download speed, not upload speed with XFS at the moment.
while its possible to limit upload speed with nginx, XFS has to to be recoded so that uploads go through nginx.

to my understanding, uploads are through apache and downloading is through nginx. so i guess installing litespeed or fastCGI would help :D

thats what i'm saying, to limit upload speed, uploads needs to go through nginx and that requires code work on XFS script.
