Chapter 17

Simulation methods, techniques and tools of computer systems and networks

Eugene David Ngangue Ndih and Soumaya Cherkaoui,    Université de Sherbrooke, Sherbrooke, QC, Canada

In this chapter, we present some methods, techniques and tools for simulating computer systems, with special emphasis on discrete-event systems such as wired/wireless networks of computer systems. Simulation is an efficient tool that provides detailed description and behavior analysis of real complex systems. The success of a simulation method basically depends on the accuracy obtained in modeling the system within the simulation tool, the computational resources required and the time elapsed to complete the simulation. For simple systems, sequential simulations, ...
