I know there is a tool that generates Snort's alerts, but I 
just cannot remeber it's name :(

The tool you're talking about is called "SNOT". You can find it
here: http://www.stolenshoes.net/sniph/index.html

From the file 'snot-0.92a-README.txt' post at that URL:

"Snot is an arbitrary packet generator, that uses snort rules
files as its source of packet information. It attempts at all
times to randomise information that is not contained in the
rule, to hamper the generation of 'snot detection' snort rules.

It can be used as an IDS evasion tool, by using specific decoy
hosts, or just something to keep your friendly IDS monitoring
staff busy.

It has been tested to run on *BSD, Linux, Win2k, NT4.0 and Win98."

I hope this helps,
