MDCSim: A multi-tier data center simulation, platform
Abstract—Performance and power issues are becoming increasingly important in the design of large cluster based multitier data centers for supporting a multitude of services. Design and analysis of such large/complex distributed system often suffers from the lack of availability of an adequate physical infrastructure and the cost constraints especially in the academic community. With this motivation, this paper presents a comprehensive, flexible and scalable simulation platform for in-depth analysis of multi-tier data centers. Designed as a pluggable threelevel architecture, our simulator captures all the important design specifics of the underlying communication paradigm, kernel level scheduling artifacts, and the application level interactions among the tiers of a three-tier data center. The flexibility of the simulator is attributed to its ability in experimenting with different design alternatives in the three layers, and in analyzing both the performance and power consumption ...
