Chapter 7

Computer networks performance modeling and simulation

Francisco J. Suárez, Pelayo Nuño, Juan C. Granda and Daniel F. García,    University of Oviedo, Asturias, Spain

Modeling and simulation (M&S) is a useful tool to evaluate the performance of computer networks both at the production and developmental phases. It is widely used by researchers, practitioners and students to analyze the behavior of computer networks, since disruptions or service performance degradations are avoided. In this chapter, a brief analysis of the M&S paradigm applied to assess the performance of computer networks is presented. First, a theoretical background on performance modeling and model validation is introduced. Similarly, well-known fundamentals of event-based ...
