I have a requirement to emulate the impact of a new application on the WAN. The WAN bottleneck is a 65MB dedicated pipe between Australia and the UK. I have a setup to generate the traffic, but to monitor the impact on user experience i need a way to emulate bandwidth limiting and packet latency in my development environment.
The correct answer will have the following characteristics:
- The WAN emulation software must be installable on Linux under a virtual environment
- The WAN emulation software should allow a packet to be held for a time period to simulate latency
- The WAN emulation software should enforce a bandwidth limitation which is configurable
Any assistance you could provide would be awesome!
