Network emulation

How do you simulate the effect of slower networks for mobile load testing?

We all love more bandwidth, but we're often caught out with horrible latency. Round trip time over mobile networks can lead to a frustrating user experience. We thought it would be great if Flood tests could mimic network conditions around bandwidth, latency and packet loss. Then you can see first hand what those conditions do to your response times.

To make it easy for you, we've even profiled some popular networks and will be adding more for you to use in future. To get started, just configure the Advanced Network Emulation section in your next Flood IO test.
