Can I control the speed of ros running on my PC? I have ros hydro installed on ubuntu 12.04 LTS. For some reason, I wish to change the speed of ros running on my system (say i wish to speed up or speed down the code-running at the back end of my ros package, i.e; controlling the ros running speed). Is that possible?

A solution without modification of package code is highly desirable.

What speed exactly do your what to reduce?

If you want to reduce the rate at which a message callback is being called, you can use topic_tools throttle:

http://wiki.ros.org/topic_tools/throttle

If you want to adjust an internal loop you can embed a ros::Rate, call .sleep() on it like in the tutorial ( http://wiki.ros.org/ROS/Tutorials/Wri... ) and use a ros parameter to set the loop rate in your node from the param server without having to change your code....

First, it would be useful for us to know which kind of application you're developing. I don't think the speed of ros running can be set
