Unhappy Dedicated Linux servers bandwidth management ?

well back on the topic http://geekvillage.com/ubb/biggrin.gif

I have been looking at Rackspace's Red Hat Linux with Webmin servers and they recently changed the configurations available - no longer available are 400 and 450 mhz processors - the lowest is 500 mhz now.

Can Linux based dedicated servers allow bandwidth management ? i.e. setting bandwidth limits on each site on the server ?

How is it done ? I have read the support and FAQ on Rackspace and they don't seem to have anything of bandwidth management. Can it be done through webmin ?

I can't comment on Raqspace, I use Dn.

As for your question, if you have a dedicated server you can configure all that (or have it configured for you).

You need to use the Apache module Mod_Bandwidth. See: http://www.cohprog.com/mod_bandwidth.html

thanks Arie ... just what I needed http://geekvillage.com/ubb/biggrin.gif

just have to see if Rackspace supports or allows it...

I would go with DN if they had some browser based administration ...

No, I don't use it, we have our own dedicated server, and don't do hosting.

I agree that browser-based server management is nice, but when we were at Virtualis, I only used it to add email accounts & aliases, and that's not to difficult to do with Telnet.....
