XenaAppMix is a feature of XenaConnect, the free software provided with all of Xena's L4-7 Gigabit Ethernet test equipment. XenaAppMix is a library of application traffic and protocols in PCAP format that makes it easy to set up large-scale realistic traffic from various applications, using pre-defined and customizable mix templates.
XenaAppMix is a feature of XenaConnect, the free software provided with all of Xena's L4-7 Gigabit Ethernet test equipment. XenaAppMix is a library of application traffic and protocols in PCAP format that makes it easy to set up large-scale realistic traffic from various applications, using pre-defined and customizable mix templates.

Xena developed XenaAppMix to make it easy to validate the performance of single devices to complex arrays of equipment – firewalls, traffic shapers, routers, deep-packet inspection equipment, capture devices, and more – from different manufacturers by emulating realistic network traffic covering video, voice, and data on a very large scale.

The traffic can be shaped to match any mix of well-known protocols, web applications, or user network traffic to accurately simulate very specific test scenarios. XenaAppMix organizes the library into protocols and applications. The former offers traffic of a single protocol, the latter a mix of several protocols.

Judge's comment: "I love this product idea of trying to make the tester life easier by pre-loading many common website traffic patterns and protocols in its library. Most of the other vendors already have PCAP import capabilities, but having all the patterns already laid out in the GUI makes the engineer's life much easier."
