Whitepaper: ROSS.Net: Optimistic Parallel Simulation Framework for Large-Scale Internet Models

by Rensselaer Polytechnic InstituteJan 01, 2008

This research paper discusses that ROSS.Net brings together the four major areas of networking research: network modeling, simulation, measurement and protocol design. ROSS.Net is a tool for computing large scale design of experiments through components such as a discrete-event simulation engine, default and extensible model designs, and a state of the art XML interface. ROSS.Net reads in predefined descriptions of network topologies and traffic scenarios which allows for in-depth analysis and insight into emerging feature interactions, cascading failures and protocol stability in a variety of situations.
