Hi,

Im in my final year of an honours degree entitled software development and computer networking. For my final year project I have decided to implement a bandwidth management system for a small network.

The plan would be to develop something to run on a server on the network, implemented in php and having a web based ui for administration. Im a bit behind at the moment due to assignments in other subjects, its all just getting on top of me a bit.

Looking for a bit of guidance on using snmp to implement it and how I would actually do this with php. I need to hand up a 5000 - 10000 word research document in two weeks and dont have much done as i said. Im just all over the place atm tbh and dont know where to start.

Any advice much appreciated.

Thanks,
mossy464

Use iptables and LARTC. The "tc" command is what you're looking for when it comes to packet shaping. Regarding php you need to author a mechanism for running certain commands with elevated privelages (root) so you can modify the firewall and traffic control rules. It will essentially be a wrapper for the command line unless you want to tackle native calls ;)

This will police the inbound traffic from the given subnet to 0.6mbit.

tc qdisc add dev eth1 handle ffff: ingress
tc filter add dev eth1 parent ffff: protocol ip prio 50 u32 match ip src 216.196.0.0/16 police rate 0.6mbit burst 10k drop flowid :1

Thanks for the reply. A friend of mine advised developing using net-snmp and perl.

Will this allow me to have a web based ui.

Hi mossy,
I am in the same situation as you, however i am advised not to use any packages, like squid, but to implement the bandwidth management system by myself. Can u advise how you did it and which tools u used. My submission deadline is in two weeks and i've not started yet.
thanks and kind regards
