I have installed xcode 4.3.1 on my machine running Lion. I can't find the Network Link Conditioner tool anywhere. I have checked the utilities folder, also the xcode / contents / developer /* directories.. no such luck. Do i need to install specific components or has this tool been removed or renamed recently? Thanks.
Issues in installing Apples Network Link Conditioner Tool
I guess you are looking in the wrong path that’s why you can’t find it. You can find the Network Link Conditioner in the “Hardware IO Tools for Xcode” package. If you don’t have it yet, the package can be downloaded from the Apple Developer Downloads. Before you can download, you need to have an Apple ID.
In the download page, search for without quotes “network link conditioner” and then pick the appropriate release of the package. See image.
Once the download is complete, open the DMG file and then double-click “Network Link Condition.prefPane” to install it. See image.
Once it is installed, you can now enable the Network Link Conditioner in its Preference pane which you can find at the bottom of System Preferences. See image.
The Network Link Conditioner utility allows the iOS devices and Mac OS X to steadily and precisely simulate undesirable networking environments. When the Network Link Conditioner utility is enabled, you can change the network environment of the iPhone Simulator according to one of the built-in presets: Edge, 3G, DSL, Wifi, High Latency DNS, Very Bad Network, and 100% Loss.
