Initial Studies of Networking Simulation on COTSon
Source: Hewlett-Packard (HP)
HP Lab's COTSon is a full system simulation framework based on AMD's SimNow. COTSon allows for simulating complete computing systems, ranging from a single node to a large cluster of hundreds of multicore nodes. This paper is the result of the first six months of the collaboration project between HP Labs and the Universitat Autonoma de Barcelona. The goal of this collaboration is to analyze network simulation in the COTSon environment, in order to propose and implement network topologies. The ultimate goal is to be able to perform reliable and accurate networking simulations using COTSon.
