Abstract

Modeling and Simulating Computer Networks Using
Formalized Data Flow Diagrams
by
Michael D. Haverdink, Albert L. Baker, and Armin Mikler
Abstract
Formalized Data Flow Diagrams (FDFD's) provide simple and natural
abstractions for specifying network behavior.  We have augmented
FDFD's by providing (i) a notion of asynchronous timing of events,
(ii) a convenient mechanism for describing "node classes", and (iii)
features for specifying network architecture.  These extensions will
facilitate the modeling of a large computer network (using the
langauge NET-SPECS) and the direct generation of a simulator of that
network.
