Bandwidth Limiting Tools
Satellite bandwidth is a finite resource and technicians aboard research vessels are constantly trying to manage bandwidth with tools that allow/deny applications or limit amount of bandwidth per device and/or user. Yet they can still spend large amounts of time tracking down errant applications. A bandwidth limiting application can be used as a stand-alone method to reduce bandwidth consumption for a particular device. There are a number of bandwidth limiting tools, here are some that we have tried and tested on different systems.
Options for limiting bandwidth on personal devices:
