Running ModelGraft to Evaluate Internet-scale ICN

Abstract :

The analysis of Internet-scale Information-centric networks, and of cache networks in general, poses scalability issues like CPU and memory requirements, which can not be easily targeted by neither state-of-the-art analytical models nor well designed event-driven simulators. This demo focuses on showcasing performance of our new hybrid methodology, named ModelGraft, which we release as a simulation engine of the open-source ccnSim simulator: being able to seamlessly use a classic event-driven or the novel hybrid engine dramatically improves the flexibility and scalability of current simulative and analytical tools. In particular, ModelGraft combines elements and intuitions of stochastic analysis into a MonteCarlo simulative approach, offering a reduction of over two orders of magnitude in both CPU time and memory occupancy, with respect to the purely event-driven version of ccnSim, notably one of the most scalable simulators for Information-centric networks. This demo consists in gamifying the aforementioned comparison: we represent ModelGraft vs event-driven simulation as two athletes running a 100-meter competition using sprite-based animations. Differences between the two approaches in terms of CPU time, memory occupancy, and results accuracy, are highlighted in the score-board.
