A quick look at traffic generators

Due to a change in priorities for the client I am working with I will have to postpone studying BGP (actually resuming this) and to start learning QoS and to add some Voice to my skills. This is a great opportunity and I am very happy that I can learn this.
Any serious QoS learning will involve testing and I don't think that you can seriously do that without using a traffic generator. So here is the list with traffic generators that I am currently evaluating and my opinions about each of them:
  1. TTCP
  2. IxChariot
  3. JPerf/Iperf
  4. Pagent
  5. Packet Builder
  6. Scapy
  7. Ostinato
  8. Mtools
  9. MGEN
  10. Rude/Crude
  11. UDPgen
  12. UDP Generator
  13. Network Traffic Generator
  14. MxTraf
  15. NTGen
  16. Netperf
  17. Traffic Generator Tool
  18. TfGen
  19. Packet Shell
  20. Real-Time Voice Traffic Generator
  21. Self Similar Traffic Generator
  22. PacGen packet forger
  23. IPGen packet forger
  24. IP-Packet packet forger
  25. GenSyn
  26. Netspec Traffic emulator
  27. Surge Traffic emulator
  28. Poisson Traffic Generator
  29. FTP traffic generator
  30. Brawny and Rough Udp Traffic Engine
  31. Jugi's Traffic Generator (jtg)
  32. TrafGen
  33. SPAK, Packet Generator
  34. TTCP, Test TCP
  35. PIM-SM, Protocol Independent Multicast Packet Generator
  36. KUTE-- Kernel-based Traffic Engine
  37. GEIST - Generator of E-commerce and Internet server Traffic
