"Apple uses Maxwell to emulate all varieties of customer networks and access points — from limited network bandwidth to extreme latency to packet drops.

By testing our products with Maxwell prior to deployment, we ensure that customers have a solid experience when they get new Apple software or hardware in their hands."

— Dmitry Halavin, Apple Inc.

A user asks if he/she can send commands to Mini Maxwell without going through the web page graphical user interface.  The answer is "yes"; Mini Maxwell can be controlled from a Python script running on another computer.

Question: (by Shamrock) Is there a way that I can send commands to Mini Maxwell remotely? Or do I have to use the GUI? Is there any type of command line interface that I could use?

Answer One:(by Sapient)  You can actually set up commands in a spreadsheet and then run that remotely. There's a video called:

"Increasing Network Packet Loss Rate
Automatically"

Answer Two:  (by MrFixIt) Actually there is also a Python program that you can use. You need to download it from the Customer Downloads section at support.iwl.com.

Basically, you can bypass the Mini Maxwell web pages and have the Python program take control. You can start the program from a CLI and it works with any framework written in Tcl, Perl, Python, etc.

You need Rev 12 or later of Mini Maxwell and Python v2.6 or later.
