We are building a tool for such goal. It is based in libnet.
We parse several parameters such as: Protocol distribution (X% HTTP,
Y% FTP, Z%H.323, etc), connection burst or not, num packets, etc
Then we build in-memory descriptors of the traffic, to later dump
full packets to the table. A second machine is prepared behind the
firewall to answer part of the traffic in order to activate contrack
mechanism of a netfilter/iptables firewall in between.
Is this what you were looking for ? It should be finished in early july.
I do not know yet if my boss will allows us to release it as open source.
If so I'll announce it here, otherwise get in thouch with us by then that
I'll read the price tag for you ;o)
