Network Traffic Generators
LANforge FIRE generates and receives various network protocols. It is used to create load on a network or device under test. It reports statistics such as packets sent and received, latency, packet-loss and many other network characteristics.
LANforge supports real protocols and stateful TCP connections, so it can generate load against web servers, VOIP gateways, firewalls, load-balancers and many other network components. LANforge can virtualize network adapters and wifi station interfaces. It can also act as a router or group of routers supporting OSPF, RIP, BGP and Multicast (PIM, IGMP). LANforge supports IPv4 and IPv6.
LANforge Fire can be purchased as software or comes in many configurations from portable to rack-mount appliances.
The WiFire appliance can emulate hundreds of 802.11a/b/g/n//ac wireless stations. Several WiFi appliances will test for the impact of collisions.
East Coast Datacom STG-10G Stateful Traffic Generator
The Stateful Traffic Generator® model STG-10G is based on the well known traffic generation engine D-ITG. The STG-10G is composed of a Graphical User Interface (GUI) that wraps the D-ITG engine, INTEL DPDK Fast Packet Technology and other test tools.
Using D-ITG, the STG-10G is capable of producing IPv4
and IPv6 traffic by accurately replicating the workload
of current Internet or typical user applications. The
platform supports 8-Ports 10/100/1000 and 4-Ports of
10GbE traffic generation managed via the easy to use
GUI. This allows users to perform load tests on hardware
prior to deployment and to simulate wired or wireless
network traffic behavior.
