Is it possible to throttle the upload speed of s3cmd? I have a 1mbit upload speed on my office DSL and s3cmd uses all of it (as I would expect) when uploading files. The problem is my cheap little DSL modem can't keep up, and all other internet traffic pretty much comes to a halt while this is happening.
Is there a way to limit the bandwidth used by s3cmd? If I could back it off by even 100kbit/s it would make a huge difference.
have a look at this: http://www.ubuntugeek.com/use-bandwidth-shapers-wondershaper-or-trickle-to-limit-internet-connection-speed.html
I have a similar problem to jasbur0; and I don't think, in my case, wonder shaper will work. My issue is that I have a webserver that once a day uploads files to S3. It's at rackspace so I have lots of bandwidth; but sometimes the s3cmd tool will use every last drop of it, causing essentially an outage for a period of a few minutes for people trying to get to the website.
It would be really nice to specify an option on s3cmd to not use more then x amount of bandwidth. IF anyone has another solution, please let me know.
Is it possible that s3cmd is not properly closing HTTP connections? I've seen this bug in several other client libraries in researching this problem.
