Celandroni N., Ferro E., Potort́ F. A traffic generator for testing communication systems: presentation, implementation and performance. In: Real-Time Systems, vol. 13 pp. 5 - 24. Kluwer, 1997.
This paper presents a multi-application traffic generator (MTG). aimed at the generation of packets over a LAN. The generated traffic simulates the one produced by a number of both isochronous and anisochronous applications, thus allowing the measurement of a number of parameters relevant to the communication network. From a test point of view, data generated by the MTG system is equivalent to data generated by real applications spread over a LAN. The MTG system is presented, its implementation is described, some figures relevant to the MTG performance are shown, and the statistical analysis which can be performed on the recorded data is briefly introduced. The user manual of the MTG system is referenced in(Celandroni, Ferro, and Potortl 1995).
