Re: Limit Socket (throttle) to send specific ammount of packets every second

in reply to Limit Socket (throttle) to send specific ammount of packets every second

Without getting cozy with the operating system, you can't specify the amount of (TCP) packets that get sent.

If you want to rate limit a proxy for the number of packets, for example, the number of bytes sent, you can use Algorithm::TokenBucket to limit the number of bytes sent per second.

    Thank you, reading the page you link me, seem the Algorithm::TokenBucket is what I need. Unfortunately this is my first application in Perl, so I'm not able to add module, and adding use Algorithm::TokenBucket; Will result in: Can't locate Algorithm/TokenBucket.pm in @INC (@INC contains: /usr/lib64/perl5/site_perl/5.8.8/x86_64-linux-thread-multi /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.8 /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl /usr/lib64/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.8/x86_64-linux-thread-multi /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.8 /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl /usr/lib64/perl5/5.8.8/x86_64-linux-thread-multi /usr/lib/perl5/5.8.8 .) at ./test.sh line 4. Could you please help me? Thank you, Lucas
      installing Perl modules is normally as easy as cpan Module::Name but see specific tutorials here at PM

      L*

      PS as side note: perl 5.8.8 is the version used by my grand grand mother.. if you are new to Perl jump directly to 5.22 or more. ModernPerl is very good book and is free!

      If perl 5.8.8 is your system Perl read RFC: (Do Not) Modify the System Perl first; some monks here around use Perlbrew to deal with multiple Perl installation.

      There are no rules, there are no thumbs..
      Reinvent the wheel, then learn The Wheel; may be one day you reinvent one of THE WHEELS.

      Because you didn't use formatting, your original follow-up post here looks like this to most of us:

      Thank you, reading the page you link me, seem the Algorithm::TokenBucket is what I need.

Could you please help me? Thank you, Lucas

      If you add formatting using advice from Writeup Formatting Tips, like this:

      <p> Thank you, reading the page you link me, seem the [mod://Algorithm::To +kenBucket] is what I need. Unfortunately this is my first application + in Perl, so I'm not able to add module, and adding <code>use Algorit +hm::TokenBucket;</code> Will result in: </p> <code> Can't locate Algorithm/TokenBucket.pm in @INC (@INC contains: /usr/lib +64/perl5/site_perl/5.8.8/x86_64-linux-thread-multi /usr/lib/perl5/sit +e_perl/5.8.8 /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl /usr/lib64/perl5/vendor_perl/5. +8.8/x86_64-linux-thread-multi /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.8 /usr/l +ib/perl5/vendor_perl /usr/lib64/perl5/5.8.8/x86_64-linux-thread-multi + /usr/lib/perl5/5.8.8 .) at ./test.sh line 4. </code> <p>Could you please help me?</p> <p>Thank you,<br />Lucas</p>

      ...then the rendering in peoples' browsers will look more like this:

      Could you please help me?

      Thank you,

      Better, right? Making the post legible encourages people to read it, which improves the odds of getting an answer. Legibility also promotes goodwill here, which improves the odds of getting a thoughtful answer. Writeup Formatting Tips
