Executive Summary

Distributed systems emulators built with the aid of virtualization tools allow testing of systems in a testbed whose number of real elements are orders of magnitude smaller than the number of virtual elements being tested. However, to allow testers to benefit from these systems, operation of the virtual environment should be hidden from them and performed automatically by the emulator. Moreover, testers may be unsure on the exact needs of their environment, and thus can request an environment that does not fit the experiment. In this paper, the authors present their achievements in providing an emulation framework able to provide environment reconfiguration if the requested one does not comply with experiment's demands.
