I want to share shows, but I also have a few internet servers running. Is there a way to make the show sharing the lowest network priority? With a 128k upload limit I feel the need to budget.


Also, I'm wondering if either machine crashes/reboots in the middle of a transfer, does it have to start again from scratch?


Thanks.

IVS is already fairly slow, so you shouldn't find the need to slow it down more to avoid it affecting your servers.


That said, download DVARchive and there are settings in there to change some of the net parameters on ReplayTVs.

IVS is not actually slow and it is not bandwidth throttled. It will use up

as much bandwidth as you give it. If you're uplink is 128k and you are

sending to someone with 1.5M downlink, it'll use up much of your 128k.


If your uplink is saturated, that will affect the rate at which you can

get TCP ACK packets back, and thus reduce your downlink to below

its potential.


Theoretically, you can adjust the QOS flags in the TCP packets from the

replay units, using iptables or ipchains, and have a linux router prioritize

the packets lower priority than telnet and regular HTTP.


I've only dabbled with this but never fully implemented something that I

was able to test.


Also, if the transfer stops for whatever reason, it picks up where it left off.
