Getting Data In

Are there any suggestions on a good data generator for inputting into a Splunk instance?

Splunk is the middleware on a Security Monitoring solution my firm just took over. Customer will not let us use live data for test, even old, expired live data.

We're standing up a full lab environment, but that's several months in process. I need to start pushing test data NOW. Any suggestions on a good data generator for inputting into a Splunk instance ??

Hadn't even THOUGHT of looking for a solution within the Splunk ecosystem. Thanks!
