To slow down file uploads for testing during development see: http://www.railsillustrated.com/simulating-a-web-experience.html.

If you don’t have OSX and you don’t like playing with iptables or installing some bandwith limiter modules to apache you can use trickle.

With trickle you can run any application with bandwidth limited, for example:


trickle -u 10 -d 20 firefox

will run firefox with upload limited to 10KB/s and download limited to 20KB/s

Hmm… if you don’t use OSX nor Linux and you like playing with windows – stop now! :)
