These patches add a package and service for Wonder Shaper, a nice
little tool configuring traffic control. The defaults should suffice
for desktop usage, with the exception of download-speed and upload-speed,
which must be chosen according to your actual speeds.
I forked the upstream repository and the package uses the fork. It's not
meant as a long lived fork. Currently the tool doesn't provide a way
to specify the config file, users are expected to edit the script. A patch
is pending upstream (https://github.com/magnific0/wondershaper/pull/68)
to add a CLI option but in the meantime wondershaper-service would have
to jump through some hoops to specify the options.
While at it, I also added two other options for the maximum rate and burst
rate for the lowest priority traffic class. My goal is to make data
exfiltration harder in a server environment and a custom rate seems just
right for that. I plan to send these options upstream as well. If you don't
like exposing non-upstream options, an alternative could be to instead
expose a list of pairs for arbitrary additional options which get pasted
into the configuration file.
