Here are a couple things that are useful -
1. Download, install, and run a full-blown Nessus scan past the sensor.
It'll set off some alarms (understatement intended).
2. Download, install, and run hping2. Craft some packets that match
specific rules, and run them past the sensor to see if the results are
3. Test the portscan and stream preprocessors with various nmap scans.
