to all those who answered....with packeteers example...
what do u do for UDP and ICMP traffic...or basically internet traffic which
has no flowcontrol in the upper layer?
packeteer i dont think is the best bet....in most cases..works fine in
hard core rate limiting at the CPE termination point is what most service
providers use to restric bandwidth...

Subject: [e2e] how to control the traffic rate below a defined value at

could someone tell me how to control the rate of a flow ( I mean to force
the rate to below a certain value )at a network node along the transmission
path? Is it right to buffer the traffic with rate higher than allowed value
and then when the buffer overflow , dropping is applied. Is it the only way?
Is there a way to avoid dropping and at the same time control flow rate at
the network node?
Thanks in advance
