Creating "Lag"

7 posts in this topic

I know, from experience, not to open a lot of things at once. BUT, what if you wanted to "lag" your system? Without opening many, many files, how would you go about "lagging" it? I was wondering if u made a script like this:

LaggyFunc()

Func LaggyFunc()

while 1

Send("{ENTER}")

wend

EndFunc

and then have another script that sends z, and another that sends a, for every possible key... How laggy would that actualy make a system? Do AutoIt scripts actually take up that much virtual memory? If not, then do you have another idea? Thanks.

If you use a win98 system you can try

\con\con

put this code in your run dialog.

if you want to emulate "Lag" or "Latancy" for internet connection, you can try things like Netlimiter. Not sure how many other programs do the same thing. Basically you can set your transfer from 1k up to your limit. Works good for testing how fast a 56k modem would work. You set it for each program, so you can download at full speed and yet test out things without slowing down the full system.

Bringing your computer down to a crawl is not hard. This used to work well:

while 1
if winactive("bobs big boy") then winactivate("bobs big boy")
wend

At least it eats up 95% of the CPU :)

I don't think I want to know the purpose of creating lag, but when I recurse my scripts it generally slows down my system... I wrote this little script for you:

Opt( "TrayIconHide", 1 )
HotKeySet( "!^q", "ExitNow" )
If( $CmdLine[0] = "/child" ) Then Child()

While 1
   $i = $i + 1
   If( $i < 11 ) Then 
      Run( '"' & @ScriptFullPath & '" /child'  )
   Else
      Exit
   EndIf
Wend

Func Child()
;   **** Your Code Goes Here! ****
EndFunc

Func ExitNow()
   Exit
EndFunc

Maybe this will help!
