Simulation has become the evaluation method of
choice for many areas of computer networking re-
search. However, most existing network simulation
packages have severe limitations on the size and
complexity of the network being modeled. Simu-
lated networks of just a few thousand network el-
ements and a few thousand data ows will quickly
exhaust the computing resources in any reasonably
sized computer workstation. Thus the researcher is
faced with the dilemma of proving concepts designed
to work e∆ciently on networks of tens of millions of
