Subject Fwd: Re: Make Tomcat run slow

If you only want to slow down the network connection to test how your 
application would behave on a slow link, I can recommend Charles reverse 
proxy. It's an inexpensive Java tool I use in debugging my web 
applications. Among other amazing things, it can "slow down" or "throttle" 
your connection, making your application appear slow to the client without 
slowing down the whole machine. Take a look at

ps. I am not affiliated, just a happy user.

Unfortunately this will not work:
- I can not modify the code for my webservice
- I need to slow down only my own implementation om Tomcat, and most
definately not the entire machine! I am not by far the only user of this
machine, my entire company depends on it :)

Besides, I have no idea how to renice a process on a modern iSeries so
that it runs unimaginably slow...
