D-ITG is a software platform for traffic generation and active measurements which present several features that make it a robust and flexible tool for networking researchers and developers. In this paper, the authors will show how it is possible to perform several experiments under a variety of network scenarios, which will include usage of novel network protocols and appliances (i.e. Intel network processors). Networking research needs robust tools to perform realistic experiments and performance measurements. In this paper, they will present the capabilities of D-ITG. D-ITG is a traffic generation and active measurement software architecture, able to replicate several network traffic profiles and to perform packet-level measurements.
