In this paper, we describe CloudNetSim, a project aiming to realise a simulation platform supporting our ongoing and planned research activities in the area of resource management and scheduling for distributed QoS-sensitive and soft real-time applications. It is based on OMNeT++, integrating in the platform a set of modules for the simulation of CPU scheduling, including hierarchical scheduling at both levels of the hypervisor and guest Operating System, as needed when simulating cloud infrastructures. Thanks to the modularity of OMNeT++, CloudNetSim may easily leverage many existing simulation models already available for networking, including standard network components and protocols, such as TCP/IP. After a brief overview of related simulation tools found in the literature, and the discussion of their limitations, we provide a detailed description of the internals of our simulator. Then, we show results gathered from a few representative scenarios demonstrating how its behaviour matches with the one of simple real applications.
