Abstract

Networking research increasingly depends on simulation to investigate new protocol behavior, performance, and interactions. In spite of wide use of simulation, today there is no common understanding of what level of simulation validation is required for these tasks, and limited background of what validation techniques are being used and their effectiveness. This paper reports on discussions of these issues that arose from the Network Simulation Validation Workshop sponsored by DARPA and NIST in May 1999. We describe best-current-practices of general validation and validation of TCP, how scale and validation interact, and workshop consensus
