'trickle' is a lightweight, portable, per-application bandwidth shaper. It works in collaboration with trickled or in stand alone mode, has peak detection, and does smoothing. It works by taking advantage of the unix loader preloading: it provides, to the application, a new version of the functionality that is required to send and receive data through sockets. It then limits traffic based on delaying the sending and receiving of data over a socket. Trickle works entirely in userland and does not require root to run.
