This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

Switch to NT. BAM - traffic delay. – Grillz Dec 9 '10 at 15:22
Interesting. And most people are trying to speed up their servers. – Cody Gray Dec 9 '10 at 17:11

Perhaps take a look at Trickle?

How about tweaking QOS? I think that might work, but if you gave some background as to what you are trying to accomplish, you may get a better answer.

Have previously used netem to simulate slow/wan/variable links for application testing between solaris hosts. Works really well.

You'll need a linux box though.
