NAME

wondershaper - simple traffic shaping script  

SYNOPSIS

wondershaper [interface]
wondershaper clear [interface]
wondershaper [interface] [downlink] [uplink]  

DESCRIPTION

This manual page documents briefly the wondershaper script. This manual page was written for the Debian distribution because the original script does not have a manual page.

wondershaper is a traffic shaping script that provides low latency, prioritizes bulk transfers below normal web traffic, prioritizes interactive shells above normal web traffic, and attempts to prevent upload and download traffic from affecting each other's ack packets. Put simply, the wondershaper makes your internet connection more "responsive"  

SYNTAX

A summary of wondershaper syntax is included below. For a complete description, see the files in /usr/share/doc/wondershaper.
