Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1045737
[RFE] 'throttle' option.
Last modified: 2014-02-02 17:30:00 EST
Description of problem:
It would be useful if DNF allowed bandwith limitting. Ideally as an option when run directly and also as a configuration option in the dnf.conf file. When running directly, it may be useful to limit DNF's bandwith to leave the rest for other applications/processes. The same (probably even more) applies to periodic metadata fetching run in background.
I believe urlgrabber supports limitting bandwith.
If I have some spare cycles during Xmas holiday, I'll try to submit a patch for this RFE.
Hi Vratislav, thanks for the report, it's a low prio but we'll keep this open for now.
