Testing distributed applications over the Internet is fraught with problems: due to the inability to control a wide area network consistent, reproduceable performance experiments are not possible. Here a system is described that uses a parallel discrete event simulator that can act as a real-time network emulator. Real Internet Protocol (IP) traffic generated by application programs running on user workstations can interact with modelled traffic in the emulator, thus providing a controlled test… CONTINUE READING
