The cost effective solution to perform large scale testing

For testing purposes, Multi Server Simulator simulates large, virtual HTTP, FTP, SMTP, or DNS server networks,
as well as SNMP-based network switches using a standard Windows PC. It is an indispensable tool for the evaluation
and testing of network management and network testing tools.

 

 

Create Virtual Test Networks In Minutes
 

Using a standard Windows PC you can create large virtual networks using Multi Server Simulator. You are able to create as many servers and virtual switches as desired - limited only by the number of available IP addresses and TCP ports (as well as network and system performance).

Available Virtual Device Types:

  • SNMP based switches (with 8, 100 or 1000 switch ports each)
  • HTTP server
  • FTP server
  • SMTP server
  • DNS server
  • Simple server (open TCP port that accepts connections)

Setting up a network 100 servers and 20 switches (with thousands of ports) network merely takes a few minutes, much faster than installing and configuring normal server software on a PC.

The program will automatically discover all available IP addresses on the local machine. Select an IP address and click on one of the protocol buttons to add a virtual server. It will show up in the tree view on the right, beneath its IP address. Click a server to go to the configuration settings. When done with the configuration enable the "Up/Down" checkbox to start the server.

 

Features
 

  • For all server/switch types:
    • Name and TCP/UDP port can be set as desired for each server
    • Servers can be created and deleted, as well as turned on and off with a single mouse click
    • Recurrent downtimes can be simulated (for each device, intervals can be set by user)
    • Detailed log is written for each simulated server
    • Server sets can be saved to an XML file and reloaded later
  • SNMP Switch:
    • Simulates an SNMP manageable switch (according to RFC 1643 and RFC 1155)
    • Simulates switches with 8, 100 or 1000 ports
    • The traffic counters for each port are constantly updated to simulate data passing through the virtual switch
    • For the 8-port switch, you can set the type of traffic pattern simulation
  • HTTP Server: The web server always answers with one of two HTML blocks (intervals and repetition can be set by the user)
  • FTP Server: Simulates an FTP server that accepts login requests and sends the number of available files
  • SMTP Server: Accepts SMTP protocol connections with and without authentication
  • DNS Server: Resolves DNS requests for the DNS name "localhost" with IP address 127.0.0.1; other DNS names cause an error message
  • PORT: Accepts TCP connections on the specified TCP port
  • Works on 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Windows Vista, 2008, 2012 and Windows 7, 8
