Thesis student @ iMinds

from October 2012 to June 2013

The virtual wall at iMinds is a testbed that consists of a hundred general-purpose machines that can be deployed in a flexible way. These machines are mainly used for research: creating networking environments and research the behaviour from various protocols. Despite the hundred machines, it is still a large undertaking to emulate quite large networking environments.

This thesis explores the various ways to emulate multiple machines on a single physical machine in its literature study. It goes deeper in the Linux Containers technique. Linux Containers can be used to isolate multiple resources of the system. Isolating the networking module in the Linux kernel emulates a new network node in the setup what is exactly what we need if we want to emulate large networking environments.
