Network Simulation, a technique where a program models the behaviour of a network either by calculating interaction between different network entities using mathematical formulae or capturing and playing back observation from a production network. The behavior of the network and the various applications and services it supports can then be observed in a test lab; various attributes of the environment can also be modified in a controlled manner to assess how the network would behave under different conditions. When a simulation program is used in conjunction with live applications and services in order to observe end-to-end performance to the user desktop, this technique is also referred to as network emulators.
Most network simulators use discrete event simulation, in which a list of pending “events” is stored, and those events are processed in order, with some events triggering future events — such as the event of the arrival of a packet at one node triggering the event of the arrival of that packet at a downstream node.
Some network simulation problems, notably those relying on queueing theory, are well suited to Markov Chain simulations, in which no list of future events is maintained and the simulation consists of transiting between different system “states” in a memoryless fashion. Markov chain simulation is typically faster but less accurate and flexible than detailed discrete event simulation. Some simulations are cyclic based simulations and these are faster as compared to event based simulations.
Network simulators like ns2/ns3, OPNET and NetSim serve a variety of needs. They allow engineers, researchers to test scenarios that might be particularly difficult or expensive to emulate using real hardware – for instance, simulating a scenario with several nodes or experimenting with a new protocol in the network. Network simulators are particularly useful in allowing researchers to test new networking protocols or changes to existing protocols in a controlled and reproducible environment.
