As a followup question to this one:
I am using the
--limit-rate parameter to limit the download speed on computers whose internet is being used:
curl --limit-rate 10k -r 104857601-209715200 -o distro2.iso 'http://files.cdn/distro.iso'
I want to periodically monitor the network usage of each computer, and dynamically decrease the
--limit-rate once the internet is being used by the user and increase it as the internet usage becomes idle. For now, the only solution that comes to my mind is to restart
curl with updated
-r parameter values. Is there any better way to achieve this?
