Modeling and analysis of performance of computer networks is essential for ensuring smooth operation of an organization’s networks and preventing major failures. Mathematical analysis and simulation modeling are the common procedures for network system performance analysis. In this paper, a knowledge-based simulation system is developed that can be used for assessment and prediction of network performance and reliability.
