Network Emulation Tools

In general, it is difficult to assess performance of distributed applications and protocols before they are deployed on the real network, because the interaction with network impairments such as delay is hard to predict. Therefore, researchers and practitioners often use emulation to mimic deployment (typically wide-area) networks for use in laboratory testbeds.

The emulators listed below implement logical interfaces with configurable parameters such as delay, bandwidth (capacity) and packet loss rates.
