Subject [users@httpd] mod_ratelimit working by steps ?
Date Thu, 19 Apr 2018 11:47:04 GMT
Hello all,

I'm using Apache 2.4.24 on Debian 9 Stable, behind a DSL connection, 
with an estimated upload capacity of ~130kB/s.
I'm trying to limit the bandwidth available to my users (per-connection 
limit is fine).
However, it seems to me that the rate-limit parameter is coarsely 
grained :

- if I set it to 8, users are limited to 8 kB/s
- if I set it to 20, or 30, users are limited to 40 kB/s
- if I set it to 50, 60 or 80, users are limited to my BW, so ~120 kB/s

(tests were done by changing the parameter, restarting apache, then 
downloading a file using Firefox. Observed speed is the one given by 

I found at least one person with a similar problem :

It seems to me that rate-limit is working by steps, rather than using 
the inputed value. Is it expected ? Could something else on my network 
stack be the culprit ?

Thanks for reading !
