NAME

shaperd - traffic shaper for tcp-ip networks  

SYNOPSIS

shaperd [-h] [-v] [-c file ]  

DESCRIPTION

shaperd is a user-mode program that can shape traffic passing through a linux box. As it runs as a normal daemon process, packet forwarding to/from the kernel can be done by the BSD divert sockets layer (available as a patch for the linux kernel) or by the ipq packet forwarding library that comes with kernel 2.4.

The configuration is made via a single text file, you can force a reload by sending a SIGHUP. Logs are routed via syslog, with priority=info, facility=daemon.

Please note that, for the moment, you must instruct the kernel which packets to forward to shaperd. This can be done, for example, with the ipchains(8) utility under Linux 2.2, or with iptables(8) under Linux 2.4. Also, note that if a packet does not match any of the rules in the configuration file, it will be ignored by shaperd (but it will be logged if the log level is high enough).  

OPTIONS

BUGS

do i kill them? become their friend?
do i eat them? raw or well done
do i trick them? i ... i don't think they're that dumb
do i join them? looks like that's the one
i got bugs on my skin tickle my nausea
i let it happen again they're always taking over
i see they surround me i see ... see them deciding my fate
oh that which was once was once up to me ... now it's too late
i got bugs in my room one on one
that's when i had a chance
i'll just stop now i'll become naked, and with them i'll become one
