Packet switching is an important aspect of ISDN. In the TDX-10 switching system, which is being developed as an ISDN exchange in Korea, the packet switching function is implemented on the basis of Case B scenario of X.31. After implementing the packet switching function the performance test must be executed to check whether the design objectives of performance are satisfied or not. However, it is not easy to set up test environment for performance measurement under full load conditions. This paper presents the design of the traffic generator which enables us to do performance test of the TDX-10 packet handler under full load conditions. To generate packet traffic we change only software programs without any change of the hardware system of the packet handler.
