Auto reset fair link limit when status IDLE or scheduled time

Post by mastermindsos »

Hello, may I request for this feature.

After a few weeks of using and monitoring gargoyle, I find that it is not possible in my case for the link limit to climb up back to the original link limit.

It is probably due to my setting, the link limit is throttled down from 36mbps to lower than 10mbps.
It will stay at 10mbps until I reset the link limit.

So I have to reset link limit daily or whenever I remember to do this.

Thank you.

As discussed in the previous thread, this is more likely due to your individual connection and settings not being optimised.

In the most recent versions we already have a button to reset the value manually. For automated reset on a timer I think this is best left to the user to create a cron job for now.

If you need assistance with this, please let us know.

Please be respectful when posting. I do this in my free time on a volunteer basis.

I appreciate this.
I do not know how to do it.
Could you show me the way please.

Edit the file at
/etc/crontabs/root
and add a line something like the following
0 5 * * * kill -SIGUSR1 $(pidof qosmon)

This would trigger the bandwidth to be reset every 5am of every day.
The crontab syntax is described here: http://www.adminschoice.com/crontab-quick-reference

Please keep in mind that this will only work on the latest 1.10.x versions where this command is supported.

Thank you, it works wonderfully.
