1/Indeed this can be simulated, with the loopback tags. You should check
loopback_lat and loopback_bw attributes on
This just creates a (fatpipe) link with a different bw/latency.
2/ For a fatpipe, if there is no loopback, it will go through the
network, and probably up then down a level to find itself (have to be
confirmed). So it woul be roughly equivalent to reaching a close
