Scalability Limits of Network Simulators

Two factors that often limit the scale of packet level simulations that can be performed are the amount of memory required and the amount of computation time needed to complete each simulation run. Because the simulator requires a certain amount of memory to represent the state of each node, memory requirements increase at least linearly with the number of nodes. Memory requirements may increase faster than linearly in some simulators, e.g., to represent routing tables. Thus, the amount of memory on the computer performing the simulation limits the number of nodes that can be represented.
