  author={Benyuan Liu and Daniel R. Figueiredo and Yang Guo and James F. Kurose and Donald F. Towsley},
Network performance evaluation through traditional packetlevel simulation is becoming increasingly difficult as today’s networks grow in scale along many dimensions. As a consequence, fluid simulation has been proposed to cope with the size and complexity of such systems. This study focuses on analyzing and comparing the relative efficiencies of fluid simulation and packet-level simulation for several network scenarios. We use the “simulation event” rate to measure the computational effort of… CONTINUE READING
