Cons
The solution originally was hard to configure; I'm not sure if they've updated this to make it simpler, but if not, it's something that could be streamlined.The production traffic simulations are not realistic enough for some types of DDoS attacks.The quality of the traffic generation could be improved with Ixia BreakingPoint, i.e. to get closer to being accurate in what a real user will do.I would appreciate some preconfigured network neighborhoods, which are predefined settings for testing networks.

For one license, you will get all the features. There is no complexity in that.
