Traffic shaping put simply is just a way of profiling the type of traffic
across a link. ISPs will mark (like a tag) the packets going through and
then it will apply restrictions maybe on an outgoing interface or even at
another router to restrict the traffic if its considered a lower priority.
So for example your bit torrent traffic may arrive at your ISP router and
they mark it as a low priority, if the link becomes congested they may even
drop some packets in favour of other traffic marked higher priority.
