    33== What is Tmix? ==
    4 Tmix is an application for generating realistic network traffic for experiments.  Using a trace of the TCP/IP headers from a production network link, Tmix is able to simulate statistically similar traffic in an experimental network.

    66== Why is Traffic Generation Important? ==
    7 The performance of the Internet depends largely on the Internet protocols.  Changes to existing protocols and new Internet protocols are constantly being proposed and implemented as the Internet continues to evolve.  These new protocols must be tested and proven before they can be deployed on the Internet.
    8 Experimentation, via software simulation or hardware emulation, has been the primary means for evaluating protocols.  Generating realistic synthetic Internet traffic is a major component of creating effective experiments, and effective experiments will enable the continued improvement of Internet protocols.
