There is a great source of knowledge on traffic shaping, the Linux Advanced Routing and Traffic Control website ( which also includes examples.

The wondershaper apps which you can find in Ubuntu repository is explained in this website too.

Also there are mirrors for this website, if I recall correctly, in Ibiblio and GNU website. Google it a bit.

PS: I'm not affiliated to that website in any way. I just found it more comprehensive than any other source on traffic shaping.
