Network Performance Tuning

view story

http://www.linuxquestions.org – Hello, I'm working on optimizing my network and I'm looking for the best way to throttle connections either by interface or process. Which is the best approach? I'm investigating which processes are consuming a lot of bandwidth at the moment but I'm debating if I should just change the interface speed to 100Mbps rather 1Gbps. The hosts in question are primarily Red Hat and Ubuntu with two Windows Servers. Thanks, Brandon (HowTos)
