Extension to traffic Control/network bandwidth management

The WRR scheduler is an extension to the Traffic Control/network bandwidth management part of the Linux 2.2, 2.4 and 2.6 kernels. The scheduler was developed to support distributing bandwidth on a shared Internet connection fairly between local machines.

 * As a default all local machines will get equally much
   of the bandwidth if they have sufficient demand. This
   is obtained by doing so-called weighted round robin (wrr)
 * It is possible to give machines transferring much data
   over a long or short period of time less bandwidth.
 * It can work on a bridge, a router or on a firewall.
 * Supports accounting locally generated masqueraded packets
   to the correct local machine.
 * On the WRR home page an extension is available which
   includes patches for Squid and the Nec socks5 proxy servers
   so that proxied packets can also be accounted to the
   correct local machine.
 * Includes a configuration file based set of scripts that
   will setup everything without changing your basic network
   setup. The scripts will allow you to shape both incoming
   and outgoing traffic.
