commandlinefu.com is the place to record those command-line gems that you return to again and again.
Delete that bloated snippets file you've been using and share your personal repository with the world. That way others can gain from your CLI wisdom and you from theirs too. All commands can be commented on, discussed and voted up or down.

First-time OpenID users will be automatically assigned a username which can be changed after signing in.
Every new command is wrapped in a tweet and posted to Twitter. Following the stream is a great way of staying abreast of the latest commands. For the more discerning, there are Twitter accounts for commands that get a minimum of 3 and 10 votes - that way only the great commands get tweeted.
Use your favourite RSS aggregator to stay in touch with the latest commands. There are feeds mirroring the 3 Twitter streams as well as for virtually every other subset (users, tags, functions,…):

Nethogs groups bandwidth by process.
in Debian-based systems apt-get could be limited to the specified bandwidth in kilobytes using the apt configuration options(man 5 apt.conf, man apt-get). I'd quote man 5 apt.conf:
"The used bandwidth can be limited with Acquire::http::Dl-Limit which accepts integer values in kilobyte. The default value is 0 which deactivates the limit and tries uses as much as possible of the bandwidth..."
"HTTPS URIs. Cache-control, Timeout, AllowRedirect, Dl-Limit and proxy options are the same as for http..."
The command copies a file from remote SSH host on port 8322 with bandwidth limit 100KB/sec;
--progress shows a progress bar
--partial turns partial download on; thus, you can resume the process if something goes wrong
--bwlimit limits bandwidth by specified KB/sec
--ipv4 selects IPv4 as preferred
I find it useful to create the following alias:
alias myscp='rsync --progress --partial --rsh="ssh -p 8322" --bwlimit=100 --ipv4'
in ~/.bash_aliases, ~/.bash_profile, ~/.bash_login or ~/.bashrc where appropriate.
On the machine acting like a server, run:
On the machine acting like a client, run:
iperf -c ip.add.re.ss
where ip.add.re.ss is the ip or hostname of the server.
Limits the usage of bandwidth by apt-get, in the example the command will use 30Kb/s ;)
It should work for most apt-get actions (install, update, upgrade, dist-upgrade, etc.)
the command is obvious, I know, but maybe not everyone knows that using the parameter "-l" you can limit the use of bandwidth command scp.
In this example fetch all files from the directory zutaniddu and I copy them locally using only 10 Kbs
