Notes on the limit_traffic_rate module
=====

To install, compile nginx with this ./configure option:

    --add-module=path/to/this/directory

Nginx directive limit_rate could limit connection's speed, and limit_conn 
could limit connection number by given variable. If the client is a browser,
 it only open one connection to the server. The speed will be limited to 
limit_rate, unless the client is a multi-thread download tool.

Limit_traffic_rate module provides a method to limit the total download rate
 by client IP or download URL, even there are several connections. The 
limit condition could be defined by the following directive.

The limit_traffic_rate module need to use a share memory pool. Directive 
syntax is same to limit_zone. 

    http {
        #limit_traffic_rate_zone   rate $request_uri 32m;
        limit_traffic_rate_zone   rate $remote_addr 32m;
        
        server {
            location /download/ {
                limit_traffic_rate  rate 20k;
            }
        }
    }
