You probably want to look at both 'shaper' and 'shaperd'. From the
shaperd docs:

Advice
======

Try CBQ first, http://ds9a.nl/lartc (no kidding).

Intro
=====

Shaperd is a user-mode program (a.k.a. daemon) that can shape traffic
passing through a linux box. I began to write it because I was tired
of waiting for the echoes when I telnet other machines over my slow
ppp link to the internet. I did try cbq and shaper, but none satisfied
me (It wasnt well-documented at the time, but now this is history :-).
Cbq is very powerful and generic (try it!), but has a rather steep
learning curve. Besides, I was looking for something cool to play with
:-).
