The EMIST ESVT (Experiment specification and visualization tools) provides an integrated environment to interact with DETER or EMULAB test-beds and to conduct network security emulation/simulation experiments. The EMIST ESVT is a modular, component-based topology editor, a TCL script generator, a worm experiment designer, a traffic trace data management interface, and a visualization tool for experimental results. First, ESVT offers a topology editor toolbar to draw network topologies including computer/end-host nodes, switch nodes, router nodes, sub-network/Internet interfaces and links. Each of these network components has configurable properties such as bandwidth and link latency, which can be stipulated and modified. ESVT can then generate a TCL script from a designed network topology in several formats: NS/2 format, DETER/EMULAB format without LAN, DETER/EMULAB format with LAN and virtualized nodes. For the experimental traffic trace files, ESVT can convert TCPDUMP trace files into NETFLOW like flow series and save them into MySQL database tables. Finally, ESVT can visualize the resulting experimental traffic by animation, sliding charts and figures, and other user-defined views.

In this section, you can find a sample topology file and some sample experimental result files which can be visualized by the EMIST GUI software. Please read the README file first.
The EMIST GUI newsgroup can be accessed at pubnews.cse.psu.edu server under cse.research.emist newsgroup.
* This version is fairly preliminary. More features will be added when the next version of this software is released.
