bandwith for downloading website users

hi@ all,

does anyone know if there is a bandwith limit set in apache or php for the visitors of a website if they start a download?
I’ve running a VMPro on Lenny. Everything is fine, but the max download bandwith is ~3,6mbit/s, the server has power enough and is connected with 100mbit/s :wink:

thanks for any hint!


To restrict the size of the bandwidth “pipe” to your server, you’d typically configure the router in front of your server with that limitation.

Within Virtualmin itself, you can configure how much total traffic a given domain can move during a month by configuring the bandwidth limits.

There are experimental Apache modules that were design to hande that, such as mod_bw and mod_throttle, but I’m not even certain they’re maintained any longer…
