Try tcpreplay. You can replay full pcap files back on to a network. It is
pretty fast but it depends on the speed of your hardware. I have used it in
the past for IDS benchmarking and was very impressed.

Subject: [Snort-users] Slightly OT: high speed packet generation software

I'm curious to know what everyone else uses for high speed packet 
generation. I'm not so much interested in single packets, but rather, 
something that can generate a lot of traffic. Noise is irrelevant, as I'm 
an looking to do IDS testing. I've looked a little at a few on freshmeat 
(packETH, pacgen, http_load) but have no experience with any of them. By 
high speed, I mean something that'll push 100Mb/s, and (hardware allowing) 

Ideally, it would be nice to have something that emulated sessions between 
a couple of ip addresses, but I'll take a variety of packet generation.
