This paper describes Nest, a graphical environment for distributed networked systems simulation and rapid-prototyping. Nest users can develop and test distributed systems and protocols (from crude models to actual system code) within simulated network scenarios. Nest represents an environment-based approach to simulation. Users view Nest as an extension of their standard Unix environment. Nest offers the generality of language-based simulation techniques and the efficiencies of model-based… CONTINUE READING
