Bandwidth limiter for updates

Feature state

openSUSE Distribution
Rejected Information

Description

Settings similar to a download manager with max number of simultaneous files, bandwidth etc. (for example type DownThemAll).

User benefit:

Is a good idea to make the system more "educated" than a bully use of the full bandwidth connection (especially if limited or poor).
- Much more useful would be a program that saves the packages separately in an orderly way and divided into categories (similar to apup for win). This is perhaps best if I insert it in another form?

Usecase

If there is low bandwidth and / or to share with other people.

Hi,

have a look at /etc/zypp/zypp.conf. Perhaps some of your needs can be configured there.

It is true, there are several interesting descriptions, but it's all commented, who assures me that the program is working properly rather than going into conflict with the system settings? Since it seems everything ready because they "spend" a minimum of time for a graphical interface that everyone can test and use?
Also I do not know if this is a feature or a bug: The dowload updates initially claimed to download 4MB, but then pointed to a long list and not declare the size (partial or total). While unloading did not indicate the progress, but I saw an icon that required an update logout, and so I did. Reopened, the download is broken down quiet and always without indicating speed or progress.

P.S. Sorry for the mistake when entering the answer!
