Any way to test DoS protection policy in the lab setup

Hello

i am looking for a way to test DoS protection policy in the lab environment before we implement it in production and wondering if there is tool (or linux-based traffic generator) that might be able to assist in generating traffic that will trigger DoS protection policy?

 

 

L5 Sessionator

iPerf, Ostinato, Hping, and many others are available as open source traffic generators.

In the interest of full discosure and as an employee of Palo Alto Networks I cannot endorse any specific third party product(s).  I do have experience using multiple open source and proprietary tools but will defer to others to comment on which specific tools they recommend or prefer.
