I've got a server using TIdHttpServer, and offering files to clients,
using ServeFile().

The problem i have, is that when i have 50 clients getting files, the
whole bandwitdth of the server is used, and the server is REEEEEALLLY slow.

I'd like to know how i can limit the GLOBAL bandwitdth of the server to
a defined limit, so that whatever happens, the application will not
occupy more than 80% of the global bandwidth ?

Is it possible ?

(Please answer yes !!!! :-))
