I am taking a Security module and my project team intend to study DoS attacks by simulating them to better understand the mechanism, the damage and preventing mechanism, etc...
- Could someone please give me an advice on where I can find a good DoS simulator?
- Are there any simulators that can simulate a big range of DoS attack?
- Can I carry out DoS in reality with just 1 computer without any zombie agents?
I am a newbie at this DoS topic. Please forgive me if my questions sound dumb to you :P.

You may use following tools:
slowloris.pl, PyLoris, LOIC
The LOIC is used by anonymous in your attacks.
Slowloris is specific for abuse of keep alive resource on Apache.
