[RESOLVED] How to simulate slow net traffic on the lan?
I need to simulate speeds as low as 33.6 KBPS on my TCP/IP LAN, currently 10 MBPS, as well as localhost access, to see how my RMI calls fare in the real world. I use Linux, but if a solution is available on NT4 I can test on this platform too.
Well, you could always use an advanced pingflooder.....they ARE good for legal uses after all. You'll have to playwith the frequencysettings until you get the bandwidth just right but it should do the trick.
Another way would be to set up an FTP server and specify the allocated bandwidth for upploading. Specify the right amount to leave your 33.6kbps free and then start uploading a massive amount of data to it. Carry out your tests while it's uploading. This is a bit of a round about way of doing this however but it's an idea.
