An application-oriented synthetic network traffic generator

Carsten Albrecht, Christoph Osterloh, Thilo Pionteck, Roman Koch, Erik Maehle


Design space exploration and detailed analysis in the field of hardware design applies simulation in many variants. A frequently used method is stochastic simulation where systems are stimulated by randomised input. Synthetic traffic traces mainly form the load for stochastic simulation of network computing devices. The generator presented here utilises two well-known models to meet the features of a majority of applications and traffic sources. Based on application-specific parameter sets, the traffic models stochastically generate packet flows which are merged to an aggregated stream. Nevertheless, all packets can always be identified and are not resolved to a data mass representing the load of a link.
