I have Apache server 2.2.21 on my OSX Lion 10.7.2 64 bit. is there a way to control to download speed?

I'm testing it locally and every download happens very quick.

is there a way to control the download speed to make it slower so it will feel like I'm downloading the files from a slow server?


Perhaps you can use mod_bandwidth for this?


What you need are queues...

  • I'd still prefer using mod_bandwidth but I'm really glad to know i can have that much control over my processes. thanks! – ufk Nov 2 '11 at 12:34
