[mininet-discuss] Data center traffic generator

you should have a look at MaxiNet [1].
In this paper, we not only propose a toolkit for distributing Mininet to 
multiple compute nodes but also a traffic generator for realistic data 
center traffic based on traffic observations from real data centers.
The corresponding traffic generator is supposed to be open source, 
however, we did not yet publish it because the software needs some 
additional bug fixing.
We hope to publish it in the next couple of weeks.
