(Lack of) Bandwidth simulation and monitoring application

Last Modified: 2006-11-17
I need an application that enables me to simulate a broad spectrum of Internet connection speeds on a single Windows OS computer. Basically I need something that will let me switch from 14K, 28K, 56K, ...up to the maximum that the computer has. I need to test Active X web applications through IE so the software would have to work by controling all the available bandwidth on a the computers network conection. In addition bandwidth monitoring and reporting would be a big plus.

Can you provide the name and URL location of an application that provides these functions? Preferably I would like the application to have some sort of demo version.

This might be a good start:
http://www.softwareqatest.com/qatweb1.html

And this one here (http://webperformanceinc.com/products/) seems to specifically mention bandwidth restrictions (between 14Kb & 100Mb).

I've been to bost of these pages. Good place to get testing apps info, but unforunately none of the ones I've tried (includeing web performance) works for what I need. Web performance really just tests HTTP transfers between the browser and server. An active X control doesn't register with web performance so it doesn't log or let you monitor outside the browser and server. Thnaks though.

Not sure if this is what you are after but this one mentions activeX testing. http://www.rational.com/products/visual_test/index.jsp
