Decreasing bandwidth

From a raw TCP/IP or IPX stand point there is not way of limiting the amount of bandwidth on a particular segment by PC. By implementing a QOS/VLAN infrastructure, you can impose a Quality factor to packets that says segment1 get 50% of the bandwidth in segment 2 or 3 and vice versa. Of course your server nics need to know QOS as well as the hubs and routers.

This is the only way that is standards based. I am sure that there is software that will simulate this limiting but not a true as a QOS environment. Cisco has several white papers on QOS and VLANS.

Good Luck

Not enough detail, but I would think you need a router that can prirotize the data by address or subnet or application.

Network Instruments may also offer a tool for doing this, I think. I think you set up a funnel point on a PC and it can be configured to moderate the traffic.

I'd want something that allows one subnet to use 100%, but be scaled back by the need s of the other subnets accordingly when the traffic is there.
