A tool to monitor, analyze and limit the bandwidth (upload/download) of devices on your local network without physical or administrative access.
evillimiter employs [Login to see the link] and [Login to see the link] to throttle the bandwidth of hosts on the network.
Possibly missing python packages will be installed during the installation process.
git clone https://github.com/bitbrute/evillimiter.git
sudo python3 setup.py install
Alternatively, you can download a desired version from the [Login to see the link].
python3 bin/evillimiter to run the tool.
evillimiter will try to resolve required information (network interface, netmask, gateway address, …) on its own, automatically.
|Displays help message listing all command-line arguments|
-i [Interface Name]
|Specifies network interface (resolved if not specified)|
-g [Gateway IP Address]
|Specifies gateway IP address (resolved if not specified)|
-m [Gateway MAC Address]
|Specifies gateway MAC address (resolved if not specified)|
-n [Netmask Address]
|Specifies netmask (resolved if not specified)|
|Flushes current iptables and tc configuration. Ensures that packets are dealt with correctly.|
|Disables colored output|
scan (--range [IP Range])
|Scans your network for online hosts. One of the first things to do after start.|
--range lets you specify a custom IP range.For example:
scan --range 192.168.178.1-192.168.178.40 or just
scan to scan the entire subnet.
|Displays all the hosts/devices previously scanned and basic information. Shows ID for each host that is required for interaction.|
--force forces the table to be shown, even when it doesn’t fit the terminal.
limit [ID1,ID2,...] [Rate] (--upload) (--download)
|Limits bandwidth of host(s) associated to specified ID. Rate determines the internet speed.|
--upload limits outgoing traffic only.
--download limits incoming traffic only.Valid rates:
limit 4,5,6 200kbit or
limit all 1gbit
block [ID1,ID2,...] (--upload) (--download)
|Blocks internet connection of host(s) associated to specified ID.|
--upload limits outgoing traffic only
--download limits incoming traffic only.
|Unlimits/Unblocks host(s) associated to specified ID. Removes all further restrictions.|
add [IP] (--mac [MAC])
|Adds custom host to host list. MAC-Address will be resolved automatically or can be specified manually.For example: |
add 192.168.178.24 or
add 192.168.1.50 --mac 1c:fc:bc:2d:a6:37
monitor (--interval [time in ms])
|Monitors bandwidth usage of limited host(s) (current usage, total bandwidth used, …).|
--interval sets the interval after bandwidth information get refreshed in milliseconds (default 500ms).For example:
monitor --interval 1000
analyze [ID1,ID2,...] (--duration [time in s])
|Analyzes traffic of host(s) without limiting to determine who uses how much bandwidth.|
--duration specifies the duration of the analysis in seconds (default 30s).For example:
analyze 2,3 --duration 120
|Shows current watch status. The watch feature detects when a host reconnects with a different IP address.|
watch add [ID1,ID2,...]
|Adds specified host(s) to the watchlist.For example: |
watch add 6,7,8
watch remove [ID1,ID2,...]
|Removes specified host(s) from the watchlist.For example: |
watch remove all
watch set [Attribute] [Value]
|Changes current watch settings. The following attributes can be changed:|
range is the IP range to scan for reconnects.
interval is the time to wait between each network scan (in seconds).For example:
watch set interval 120
|Clears the terminal window.|
|Quits the application.|
|Displays command information similar to this one.|
