Subject: [unisog] network traffic simulations

Quick question:

We're currently looking into a platform for doing simulations of network 
traffic. This would include creating a large number of random flows, 
packets, src/dst ports, etc to mimic the typical behavior of a 
university network. We're basically looking for a way to "burn in" new 
network equipment before it's placed in production. Does anyone have 
any experience or recommendations?

Thanks much,
