Getting What You Want When You Want It: Deterministic Network Emulation
2016 (English)Conference paper (Refereed)
This paper presents KauNetEm, an extension to the Linux-based NetEm emulator that provides deterministic network emulation. KauNetEm enables precise and repeatable placement of NetEm emulation effects, a functionality that can considerably simplify several aspects of protocol evaluation. KauNetEm can be instructed to drop specific packets, apply a configurable delay or other emulation effects at predefined points in time. The motivation for deterministic emulation, the overall design of KauNetEm, and usage examples are provided.
