If you use Proftpd, you could set TransferRate in your /etc/proftpd.conf file as indicated in the following reference:


and in the official documentation:


For example:

TransferRate APPE,RETR,STOR 100

And remember that you would have to restart the service for the changes to apply:

/etc/init.d/proftpd restart

All this works under the mod_xfer module: link
