Spirent CyberFlood-Virtual

CyberFlood Virtual offers validation of Quality of Service (QoS) and Quality of Experience (QoE) through quick and simple-to-use performance tests for content aware networks.


Spirent’s revolutionary CyberFlood application testing solution is now available as a virtual, simplified platform, consolidating multiple test functions into a completely virtual test environment.

CyberFlood Virtual offers validation of Quality of Service (QoS) and Quality of Experience (QoE) through quick and simple-to-use performance tests for content aware networks.


  • Test SDN environments directly from within a virtual environment with multiple unbounded traffic generation endpoints
  • Scale test solutions to handle vast amounts of traffic based on your needs
  • Test Next Generation Firewalls
  • Generate application load traffic from a growing database of tens of thousands of user scenarios and application flows to verify application ID policies and performance
  • Use Advanced Mixed Traffic tests to create custom user actions, including IPSec and SSL VPN capacity and throughput
  • Validate performance with Amazon Web Service (AWS) environments, Azure, and Google Cloud (GCP)
  • Replay custom applications and recorded web sessions at scale
  • Assess SD-WAN and SASE environments for scale and performance
  • Functional performance licensing available for lower cost and higher virtual instance density use cases
  • Optional advanced security testing solutions are also available

User Realism with CyberFlood

CyberFlood utilizes TestCloud™ for access to tens of thousands of applications so you can generate traffic with authentic payloads for realistic performance load and functional testing. CyberFlood creates tests with the latest apps from the Spirent TestCloud, while also providing the ability for users to import their own applications to recreate custom applications at scale.

Features & Benefits

  • Ease of Use—Extremely easy to use and highly intuitive graphical user-interface that allows for difficult configurations to be set up instantly; from setting up global IPs from a world view map to drag and drop protocols, CyberFlood makes performance testing easy.
  • Economical—CyberFlood Virtual comes in a number of simple annual subscription licensing options to meet your use case and performance needs. From basic performance testing to a full suite of application testing with updated content, you can choose the right solutions for your needs.
  • Cloud Assessment—CyberFlood Virtual can be installed on specific cloud infrastructures, such as AWS, Azure, and Google Cloud (GCP) to validate and verify performance of default and/or third-party cloud based traffic inspection solutions.
  • Flexible—Change the system resources of vCores and memory assigned to CyberFlood Virtual traffic generators to build systems that meet your specific needs.
  • IPSec Testing—Validate IPSec VPN capacities including tunnel setup, maximum tunnels, and data rates over encrypted tunnel for remote access and site to site use cases.
  • SSL VPN—Test tunnel setup and data traffic throughput capacity over an expanding set of SSL VPN dialects. Create comprehensive scale and accuracy tests with full control over data plane traffic profiles.
  • Applications—With CyberFlood, users can quickly and easily test with the latest and most popular applications (updated continuously), all with unparalleled realism and scalability. Users can push their solutions to the limit while ensuring their content aware networks will stand up to real-world demands.
  • Advanced HTTPS Testing—CyberFlood Virtual provides extensive coverage to test and stress HTTPS traffic at scale. Easily configurable cipher types, cert sizes and a variety of other parameters allow users to create highly realistic HTTPS and mixed traffic tests quickly and easily.
  • CyberFlood Virtual can also be used with the Avalanche application testing solution for legacy application test cases.
  • NetSecOPEN Built-in Tests—NetSecOPEN is a networking industry group where networking vendors, tool vendors, labs and enterprises collaborate to create open and transparent testing standards.
  • Expansive Use Cases—Test capacity, performance, and scale of next generation environments, such as SD-WAN and SASE. Validate a wide cross section of performance and user experience factors.
  • Automatic Goal Seeking—Determine maximum capabilities of a device with minimal user interaction.
  • Realistic Web Testing—Use web-capture capabilities to import and replay recorded sessions of complex website interactions and traffic to validate performance and comprehensive application policies.
