Abstract [en]

The purpose of this master’s thesis is to examine the possibilities to build an efficient and accurate distributed IP traffic generator based on a open source software traffic generator. The problem lies in the demand for high performance traffic generators during quality assurance of IP equipment and the high price of commercial hardware traffic generators. An evaluation is conducted to identify a suitable traffic generator, given a set of requirements that the traffic generator must fulfill to be usable in performance testing. A distributed system utilizing the most suitable traffic generator is then implemented. The result and conclusion of this report is that hardware traffic generators are superior to the software based counterpart due to the several drawbacks that software traffic generators suffers from, such as disc I/O and CPU load.
