The LARTC-HOWTO describes many advanced ways of routing and shaping traffic. Using the HOWTO, you will be able to shape traffic in myriad ways, which will help you lower latency for interactive use when others are downloading or uploading. It will also teach you how to limit certain hosts/protocols' bandwidth usage. It also explains many aspects of routing using the 'ip' tool from the iproute2 suite.
