General informations

The Linux kernel configuration item CONFIG_SHAPER has multiple definitions:

Traffic Shaper (EXPERIMENTAL) found in drivers/net/Kconfig

The configuration item CONFIG_SHAPER:

Help text

The traffic shaper is a virtual network device that allows you to limit the rate of outgoing data flow over some other network device. The traffic that you want to slow down can then be routed through these virtual devices. See Documentation/networking/shaper.txt for more information.

An alternative to this traffic shaper is the experimental Class-Based Queuing (CBQ) scheduling support which you get if you say Y to "QoS and/or fair queuing" above.

To compile this driver as a module, choose M here: the module will be called shaper. If unsure, say N.
