Sometimes I need to simulate a WAN environment between my client and server. I mean, specifically, from most important to least:
- Total bandwidth limit,
- Occasional long (many tens of seconds) delays
Preferably, the WAN simulator could act as a proxy -- I point my client at the WAN simulator and the WAN simulator talks to the server. I have spent a lot of time Googling to try to find something that will do this, and have found very very little.
Of course, I know there are various solutions I can implement by controlling the network topology and inserting devices in the middle, but IT controls the network. I'm just a developer.
What free or low cost tools do y'all know about that can help one simulate a WAN?
