The paper analyzes various methods of bandwidth management of computer networks (CN), such as a quota system, traffic prioritization, queuing, limited service, active content management, threshold control, proxy caching, data compression, network address translation, and determines their advantages and disadvantages, as well as the possibility of their use in the CN traffic management. (pp. 59-69)

Keywords: bandwidth, bandwidth management, quota systems, traffic shaping, limitation of service, active content control, threshold management
