is at eliminating bandwidth consumption peaks. Lower values will be
more aggressive, but may also result in over shaping. The default
value (512 KB) is usually sufficient.
Set smoothing time to
s. The smoothing time determines with what intervals
will try to let the application transcieve data. Smaller values will
result in a more continuous (smooth) session, while larger values may
produce bursts in the sending and receiving data. Smaller values (0.1
- 1 s) are ideal for interactive applications while slightly larger
values (1 - 10 s) are better for applications that need bulk transfer.
Set smoothing length to
KB. The smoothing length is a fallback of the smoothing time. If
cannot meet the requested smoothing time, it will instead fall back on
KB of data. The default value is 10 KB.
