On an open device, you can simulate application behavior in different network environments by initiating network virtualization. Perfecto offers a list of preset network conditions, or profiles, but you can also customize the conditions to match your requirements. For each available profile, the list shows the values for the following parameters, in this order:

  • Network constant to use, which is the string constant representing the network profile
  • Latency (ms)
  • Bandwidth in/out (Kbps)
  • Packet loss (%)

For a list of available profiles, see Network conditions for network virtualization.

When the network virtualization takes effect, you can start testing the application with the new network conditions applied.

Watch this short video to see how you can initiate network virtualization.


To initiate network virtualization
  1. On the device toolbar, click the network icon .
  2. In the Network virtualization form, do one of the following:
    • Select a preset profile.
    • Specify customized parameter values for latency, bandwidth in, bandwidth out, and packet loss.
  3. Click SET NETWORK.
    A success message appears to indicate that the network virtualization has taken effect.
To set the network back to the default environment
  1. On the device toolbar, click the network icon .
  2. In the Network virtualization form, click Reset.
    A success message appears to indicate that the default environment conditions are back in place.
