Description

This is a guide on how to use the tc command to reduce the available bandwidth of a given interface on Arch Linux.

  • Configure enp0s3 to never use more than 64kbps regardless of port or application:
    sudo tc qdisc add dev enp0s3 handle 1: root htb default 11
    sudo tc class add dev enp0s3 parent 1: classid 1:1 htb rate 64kbps
    sudo tc class add dev enp0s3 parent 1:1 classid 1:11 htb rate 64kbps
    
  • To delete all traffic control throttling rules and to return to normal speeds:
    sudo tc qdisc del dev eth0 root
