A simulation platform for modelling and simulating distributes architectures and applications.
The main goal of SIMCAN is to simulate large complex storage networks. Moreover, with this simulator, high performance applications can be modelled in large distributed environments. Thus, SIMCAN can be used for evaluating and predicting the impact of high performance applications on overall system performance. SIMCAN is based on the INET Framework, and features an own GUI.
SIMCAN also provides a MPI-based API for simulating MPI applications in the modelled architectures.
