Virtual Network User Mode Linux (VNUML) tool

VNUML (Virtual Network User Mode Linux)is an open-source general purpose virtualisation tool designed to quickly define and test complex network simulation scenarios based on User Mode Lunix (UML) virtualisation software. It has been initially developed in the context of Euro 6IX research project to simulate IPv6 IX scenarios based on Linux and zebra/quagga routing daemons. However, it is a useful tool that can be used to simulate general Linux based virtual network scenarios.

VNUML is made of two components: a simple and descriptive XML-based language to write a text file with the specification of the desired scenario; and a parser that interprets the language and builds and run the scenario described in the file, hiding all the UML booting complex details from the user.

Being VNUML a general virtualisation tool, it can be applied in a wide variety of fields, for example, to create network testbeds to text new applications or network services, to create honey-pots for security environments, or to complement computer network laboratories. VNUML has been used in several activities inside Euro6IX and it is also being used outside the project by several universities, research centres and companies.
Besides, since its release as an open-source tool hosted by Sourceforge, several important contributions have been received from external developers.
