Shaping on a large scale

Check out Packeteer.  I used to work somewhere about that size and this
was the product we used:

Open source you can do a custom setup with IPTables and iproute2, but it
will take some work to get the same kind of features and management
interface.  LARTC is a good reference for this kind of topic:  Also I'm not sure if someone has built this into any
of the firewall specific linux distros yet, so you may want to explore
those a little.

Good luck,

Subject: Shaping on a large scale 


Does anyone know of  any Shaping appliances to shape customers based on 
IP, allow for a quota per IP and qos mechanisms like LLQ?,  This is 
should be something that can sit in between two border router's and 
support a small ISP (20000 customers), also an opensource solution would 
be great!
