constrained-connection

Simulate constrained network connections.

Can be used to benchmark networking logic build on top of a stream oriented connection (e.g. TCP). Create a connection by specifying its bandwidth as well as its round trip time (delay). The connection will delay each bytes chunk by the configured delay and allow at most bandwidth-delay product number of bytes on the wire enforcing backpressure.

let msg = vec![0; 10 * 1024 * 1024];
let msg_clone = msg.clone();
let start = Instant::now();
let mut pool = futures::executor::LocalPool::new();

let bandwidth = 1_000_000_000;
let rtt = Duration::from_micros(100);
let (mut a, mut b) = Connection::new_constrained(bandwidth, rtt);

pool.spawner().spawn_obj(async move {
    a.write_all(&msg_clone).await.unwrap();
}.boxed().into()).unwrap();

pool.run_until(async {
    let mut received_msg = Vec::new();
    b.read_to_end(&mut received_msg).await.unwrap();

    assert_eq!(msg, received_msg);
});

let duration = start.elapsed();

println!(
    "Bandwidth {} KiB/s, RTT {:.5} s, Payload length {} KiB, duration {:.5} s",
    bandwidth / 1024, rtt.as_secs_f64(), msg.len() / 1024, duration.as_secs_f64(),
);

For now, as the library is not properly optimized, you can not simulate high speed networks. Execute the examples/accuracy.rs binary for details.

$ cargo run --example accuracy --release
