A lightweight Python-based Web-GUI for Linux traffic control (
tc) to set, view and delete traffic shaping rules. The Web-GUI is intended for short-term isolated testbeds or classroom scenarios and does not contain any security mechanisms.
No further changes are planned right now, but pull requests are welcome.
- Tested with Ubuntu 16.04 LTS & Raspbian 4.14.98-v7+ (stretch, Debian 9.8)
- Install with
sudo apt-get install iproute python3-flask
- Install with
- More information:
Execute the main.py file and go to http://localhost:5000:
sudo python3 main.py --ip IP The IP where the server is listening --port PORT The port where the server is listening --dev [DEV [DEV ...]] The interfaces to restrict to --regex REGEX A regex to match interfaces --debug Run Flask in debug mode
The tool will read your interfaces and the current setup every time the site is reloaded
Test & Develop
You can use the supplied Vagrantfile to test tcgui quickly. Vagrant will setup two machines, sender (192.168.210.2) and a receiver (192.168.210.3):
Afterwards connect to the sender and start the GUI:
vagrant ssh sender cd /vagrant sudo python3 main.py --ip 0.0.0.0 --debug
Start a receiver in the receiving VM:
vagrant ssh receiver iperf3 -s
Send a packet stream from the sender to the receiver:
vagrant ssh sender iperf3 -c 192.168.210.3 -t 300
Now access the GUI at http://192.168.210.2:5000/ and change the rate of interface eth1. You should see the sending/receiving rate to decrease to the set amount.
