For the modern software that uses network communication protocols the problem
of the ensuring reliability is acute. To solve such an important problem the stress testing is
used. This type of the testing involves the generation of a large number of the test data,
including sets of network packets. Reducing the stored data after the testing process is the main
task. This task can be solved by clustering the set of received packets. To solve this problem it
is proposed to use the clustering algorithm for categorical data of CLOPE. This algorithm
allows to cluster datasets without the information about the source clusters. It has the low
computational complexity and ease of implementation. The article describes the preparation
and results of sets of the network packets processing experiments. The article shows that the
CLOPE algorithm can be effectively used for the clustering network packets received during
stress testing. The results of the research extend the toolkit for the SW stress testing process.
