PacketStorm series is an IP network emulator that can be applied to packets that pass through various emulated behavior such as delay, latency, packet drop, etc. that can happen on IP network.
PacketStorm also allows reproduce and verify the behavior when various network devices such as VoIP and video distribution actually encounter packets with various failures on the IP network.
To operate PacketStorm, simply drag and drop icons that define filters and faults and connect them with lines.
This intuitive operation allows first-time users to quickly build emulations of faulty IP networks with little training required. In addition, you can easily set up a network in which multiple obstacle factors are involved, and you can grasp the status of the settings at a glance.
Simply place a fault icon between the source and destination icons on the screen, connect them with a line, and double-click each icon to set filters and fault parameters.
Up to 32 links can be created between the source and destination.
Various network variable blocks can be applied to PacketStorm via GUI. You can select a couple of them and group as a network under test.
(Click each item name to display the setting screen for that function.)
(*1)=Delay can select the following distributions：Fixed, Gaussian, Uniform, Exponential, BiModal
(*2)=itter can select the following distributions：Gaussian, Uniform, Exponential
(*3)=Drop You can also use the Gilbert Elliot Ross model.
PacketStorm can rewrite (alter) the information in the IP header of passing packets. Also, like the rewriting of IP address and TTL, multiple header information can be rewritten on one link, and it can be used together with the failure function such as delay and drop.
(Click each item name to display the setting screen for that function in a separate screen.)
PacketStorm is equipped with various packet filter functions so that it is possible to apply a fault to only a specific packet among the passing packets and rewrite the header.
PacketStorm can set up to 32 links. The following filters (single or combination) can be set for each of these links.
PacketStorm is equipped with a number of unique functions to assist in device testing and verification while applying the above faults and rewriting headers. For details, click "Useful functions of PacketStorm" below, or click each item, and a new screen will guide you.
PacketStorm has a lineup of three types. You can select the most suitable model according to your application.
