Use old routers for WAN simulation

May 18th, 2013

When I was playing with Citrix today, I needed to slow down my 1Gbs connection. My first thought was to use a WAN simulator, but the cost for one, even the entry model is over $3000 . Luckily I have a few old Cisco Routers that I can use. There is a feature called Committed Access Rate (CAR) that you can se to limit the traffic on an interace. Let limit ICMP traffic on interface 0 to 8kps , 2KB for normal and 4KB for excess burst values

Let’s test it
