‘Testing applications under slow or flaky network conditions can be difficult and time consuming. Blockade aims to make that easier. A config file defines a number of docker containers and a command line tool makes introducing controlled network problems simple.’ Open-source release from Dell’s Cloud Manager team (ex-Enstratius), inspired by aphyr’s Jepsen. Simulates packet loss using “tc netem”, so no ability to e.g. drop packets on certain flows or certain ports. Still, looks very usable — great stuff.
