Is there a way to do rsync with varying bwlimit during the transfer. I tried to look using Linux 'tc'  but it looks trivial. Do somebody has working model for it?
Our pipe is limited and we don't want to give everything to rsync, We have situation where we want rsync transfers to scale up or down within a specified bandwidth limit. For e.g. if there are two (or multiple)  rsyncs running parallel they should be contained in max bwlimit (say like 1Mbps) and if there is only one running it should use the entire allocated bandwidth limit.
