Title: Simulating, visualizing, and searching traffic in a software defined network

Abstract

The present disclosure pertains to systems and methods for simulating data packet routing within a software defined network (“SDN”), visualizing the results of the simulation, and permitting a user to search the resulting simulation. In one specified embodiment, a system may receive from a user a simulation parameter associated with a packet to be simulated in the SDN. A packet based on the at least one simulation parameter may be generated. A response of the SDN to the packet may be simulated by identifying applicable traffic routing rules and identifying a subsequent destination based on the applicable traffic routing rules. A record of the subsequent destination may be added to the simulation result, and the process may continue until a terminating condition is satisfied.
