Duplicating Packets from One Input to One Output

The PacketDuplicator module creates a configured number of duplicates of incoming packets.

In this example network, packets are produced periodically by an active packet source (ActivePacketSource). The packets are pushed into a (PacketDuplicator), which creates 0 or 1 copy of them randomly. Finally, the packets are all sent into a passive packet sink (PassivePacketSink).

        }
