Virtualization

A Parallel Network Simulation and Virtual-Time-Based Network Emulation Testbed

Free registration required

Executive Summary

To analyze large-scale systems with high fidelity, it is necessary for a network testbed to offer both realistic emulation (to represent software execution) and effective simulation (to model background computation and communication). The authors present a network testbed that integrates a light-weighted emulation system OpenVZ (modified earlier to operate in virtual time) with a parallel discrete-event network simulator S3F. Their algorithmic contributions lay in the design and management of virtual time as it transitions from emulation, to simulation, and back.
