Experimentation is an essential step for many scientific types of research since it enables the researcher to observe the validity of his hypotheses. In the context of computer networks, during the experimentation phase, it is challenging to find load generators that can model traffic patterns for the most diverse types of applications. In this sense, we present WAVE – Workload Assay for Verified Experiments. Being application agnostic, WAVE has been widely performed in load tests for video-on-demand and key-value store applications. In the current version, WAVE can generate loads for two distinct patterns: sinusoid and flashcrowd.
