Abstract:

Discrete event simulation DES enables the analysis of well-defined systems by evaluating the results of events acting upon the system. DES usually skips over timespans where no events occur to enable faster-than-real-time simulation. While this is a powerful and often needed capability, in the domain of real-time emulation, where the events need to be synchronized with other emulated andor real components, time skipping is not feasible. This report describes a toolkit created by US Army Research Laboratorys ARL Network Science Research Laboratory NSRL for building a DES for injecting discrete events into real-time emulations in a controlled and reproducible manner. The resultant system, the NSRL Discrete Event Toolkit NDET, has enabled high reproducibility of network emulations experiments for NSRL.
