A Testers Journey

An ounce of practice is better than tons of theory

Bandwidth Throttling for testing

Not every one has the luxury of using  high bandwidth connections, you can witness and see the difference in the internet connection speed in your office and the one at home. These variations which we see at home, office etc depends on the bandwidth we have or can afford to have.

To know more about bandwidth throttling click here.

Its important to take care that our application performs reasonably good in different bandwidth, To check this we cannot afford time and money to go to places where we can  test for different bandwidth, The solution for this is the reason for this post.

I am not going to explain how these add-on / tools work but will be just sharing these add-on / tools in this post.

I had put forward a query in twitter if anyone knows any tools or ideas to test the application performance under different bandwidth,

Rob Lambert shared a proxy tool which u can find it here. So this led me to ask people if there are any other tools which they use so that i can evaluate the tool which suits my purpose and use it,  I did a quick google and stumbled upon a firefox add-on which can be found here.

Both the tool seems to be cool but the FF add-on was easier to install and run my application for different bandwidth 🙂

If you have any idea’s  or tools or anything informative to share regarding bandwidth throttling please do share .
