A CloudSim-based Visual Modelling tool for Analysing Cloud Computing Simulation Environments and Applications.
The biggest challenge is to evaluate performance and service of Cloud services. CloudAnalyst can be used for evaluation and modeling of Cloud environments
and applications. It helps to simulate Cloud applications to analyze its behavior. It also provides insight into how to balance /distribute application load in cloud infrastructure resources
CloudAnalyst is built on top of CloudSim; It allows configuration of application workloads such as number of resources in each data center, geographic location of data centers, number of users, etc. It provides information such as request processing time, response time metrics etc.
1. Download installer package from http://www.cloudbus.org/cloudsim/CloudAnalyst.zi
2. Extract Files from the compressed package file which will give following folder structure
If you want to Run CloudAnalyst from Command line then go to specified folder where you have extracted and issue command as available in the screenshot.
Run from Command Line Or click on run.bat file
Click on Show Region Boundaries:
Click on Configure Simulation
Here you can configure different aspects such as Data Center Configuration, Physical Hardware Details of Data center
You will get detailed configuration of a data center as available in below screenshot:
We can also perform Data Center Configurations in the lower section.
Data Center Configuration-Advanced
User Base: models a group of users and generates traffic representing the users. Application Deployment Configurations (Cloudlets)
o Service Broker Policy
Service Broker Configurations
Main Configurations. We can Save Configuration as well in case you want to use it later. It is stored as .sim file. XML data is generated and saved as Sim file.
Save Configurations. Saved configuration can be loaded anytime easily into it.
Load Configurations - enter data each time you want to run simulation.
In this article, I have created 2 DC in different region, each with 20 physical host.
Configurations - Data Centers in different Regions
Configurations - Round Robin Load Balancing Policy
6 User bases and each in different region; 25 VMs are allocated to fulfill requests from all user bases from both the Data Center
Configurations - User Base and Regions. Once your are done with Configuration; click on Done.
Configurations - Internet Characteristics
Click on Done.
Configure Internet Characteristics
Simulation Results Window will Open
Close it. Main Window will give all statistics.
If you will try to run Simulation again then it will give Error
Simulation Error - We need to Restart Simulation Error.
Click on Exit
