We've been using the Packetshaper for about six weeks, and it is pretty
good. I haven't really started to get into the reporting capabilities,
but I know how to pull up graphs on default bandwidth usage settings,
etc. The shaping is pretty cool, and you can do such things as
determining incoming bandwidth, guaranteeing bandwidth by IP address,
and a few other things that I haven't played with yet. One of the
things we've been toying with lately is determining incoming bandwidth
of web browsers, and sending anything under 64k to an alternative
low-bandwidth site.
