We have developed a LISP simulator (CoreSim). CoreSim is an Internet-scale LISP deployment simulator. It is able to replay a packet trace and simulate the behavior of a LISP Ingress Tunnel Router (ITR) and the associated Mapping Resolver, on top of a topology based on measurements performed by the iPlane infrastructure. It reports mapping lookup latency, the load imposed on each node of the MS and cache performance statistics. The simulator implements LISP-ALT and LISP-DHT. In this technical report we validate our LISP-DHT implementation, present an estimator for the latencies not reported by iPlane and discuss the architecture of CoreSim.
