Application Traffic Generator

Benchmark the Performance and Functionality of Application Aware Devices and Systems

A good network traffic generator benchmarks your network performance. A great network traffic generator gives you thousands of pre-built application flows to choose from so you can replicate the real traffic your application-aware devices and systems face. As you perform stateful network traffic testing, you want the assurance that you’re emulating real-world situations. This is crucial for security testing and firewall testing. AppStorm delivers the performance benchmarking you need for your application-aware systems and devices.

AppStorm is a layer 7 test platform that allows you to emulate application servers and up to 1 million endpoints to review the performance of SD-WAN gateways, DPI, IPS/IDS Systems, next-generation firewalls and more. Use AppStorm with the Apposite Attack Library to simulate malicious attacks to test your anti-DDoS readiness and protect against zero-day attacks. Learn more about AppStorm and find out why it’s the right network traffic generator for your system.

Emulate Real-World Application Traffic

Emulate clients, servers, and real network traffic with our extensive library of application flows to performance benchmark application aware devices and systems like SD-WAN gateways, Next Generation Firewalls, IPS/IDS Systems, DPI, and Anti-DDoS readiness.

Ensure malicious attacks and unauthorized traffic are blocked while valid traffic is let through at an efficient rate.

AppStorm Generate Application Traffic


  • Generate a city scale of application traffic to quickly and easily validate the performance of application-aware devices and networks.

  • Choose from an extensive library of application flows that is continually updated by a dedicated team of protocol experts.
  • Configure custom traffic flows with a mix of applications and protocols that mimic your production network’s real traffic.
  • Optimize next-generation firewalls and other security infrastructure to help build threat resilient networks.

  • Test using pre-defined flows for video streaming, social media, SaaS, E-commerce, finance, gaming, chat, web conference, and many others.
  • Evaluate the performance of vendor solutions and service provider networks before deployment.

Utilize Pre-Built Application Flows

Ensure quality of service of products and quality of experience for customers using pre-built application flows for many applications such as, Netflix, Oracle, SAP, Facebook Twitter, Uber, and Zoom.

Simplify test configuration using our modern, browser-based user interface or automate testing using RESTful API.

A Stateful Traffic Generator You Can Trust

When stress testing your network and devices, you want a network traffic generator that emulates real-world results. AppStorm lets you optimize the performance and functionality of application-aware systems and devices by generating traffic at scale.  Gain real-time insight into your capabilities, performance bottlenecks, and end user’s experience. 

AppStorm’s wizard-driven configuration process and modern UI simplifies test set up compared to other free and open source tools. You can mimic your production network traffic by simply dragging and dropping a mix of protocols and applications to configure custom traffic flows or automate and script testing with RESTful API. 

Network Traffic Testing That Meets Your Requirements

Use our network traffic emulator to generate application traffic as well as malware for security and firewall testing. Simulate malicious attacks, including DDoS attacks, zero-day attacks, and other CVEs to ensure your network and devices are prepared for cybersecurity threats. As a stateful traffic generator, AppStorm allows you to perform pre-deployment performance evaluations of service provider networks and vendor solutions.

With our l4-7 network traffic generator, you can quantify the effect of QoS policies on the end-user experience and application performance. Testing allows you to ensure that authorized traffic will pass through while malware does not. AppStorm offers customizable test reports that identify crash-causing packets and provide the flow direction of the blocked application.
