DeSiNe: a flow-level QoS Simulator of Networks

Thu, 12/11/2008 - 13:16 by Bruno Quoitin • Categories:


In this paper we present DeSiNe, a modular flow-level network
simulator. DeSiNe is aimed at performance analysis and bench-
marking of Quality of Service routing algorithms and traffic engi-
neering extensions. Several well-known QoS routing algorithms
and traffic engineering extensions have been implemented in De-
SiNe. The flow-level nature provides scalability, such that large
networks and heavy-traffic conditions are possible. In this paper,
the functional and structural design of DeSiNe are presented and
the usability and various features are illustrated by means of sev-
eral examples. The source code of DeSiNe is publicly available.
