Slowy is a tool which simulates custom connection's conditions and limits the network traffic to a specified destination port. It is useful for Web developers who need to test a website with a real-world connection or for limiting bandwidth-hungry applications. It currently supports:
  • custom bandwidth limit (kbit/s)
  • custom packet latency (ms)
  • custom packet loss rate (%)
  • custom destination port (so you will slow down only a single service)
Slowy is an OS X menu-bar app, so it is lightweight and is placed only in the menu bar.
What's New

If you install Apple Developer tools there is something similar built in called Network Link Conditioner. This can simulate all sorts of conditions like 3G/Edge/WiFi (Lossy, Average and Good for each type).

It's in /Developer/Applications/Utilities/Network Link Conditioner, and installs as a preference pain.
