D-ITG, Distributed Internet Traffic Generator 

D-ITG (Distributed Internet Traffic Generator) is a platform capable to produce traffic at packet level accurately replicating appropriate stochastic processes for both IDT (Inter Departure Time) and PS (Packet Size) random variables (exponential, uniform, cauchy, normal, pareto, ...).

D-ITG supports both IPv4 and IPv6 traffic generation and it is capable to generate traffic at network, transport, and application layer.

We believe that D-ITG shows interesting properties when compared to other traffic generators.

D-ITG currently supports the following operating systems:

  • Linux (Ubuntu, Debian, Fedora, CentOS, OpenWRT)
  • Windows (XP, Vista, 7)
  • OSX (Leopard)
  • FreeBSD

For more information please take a look at the documentation.

NM2 is proud to present the first release of the DITGBox appliance based on D-ITG.

D-ITG is open-source and completely free. For professional services please refer to D-ITGPro.
