Poor man’s AWS CLI “s3 sync” bandwidth limit

Here you go:

PID=13424; while [ 1 ]; do kill -STOP "$PID" ; sleep 0.4 ; kill -CONT "$PID" ; sleep 0.6 ; done

You may need to adjust the two sleep intervals in seconds.

This is a quick hack until the AWS CLI team releases an official option, which is being discussed under AWS CLI issue #1090.
