    LIMBO

    LIMBO Load Intensity Modeling Tool

    LIMBO is an Eclipse-based tool for handling and instantiating load intensity models based on the Descartes Load Intensity Model (DLIM). LIMBO users can define variable arrival rates for a multitude of purposes, such as custom request time-stamp generation for benchmarking or the re-parametrization of request traces. LIMBO offers an accessible way of editing DLIM instances and extracting them from existing traces. It also supports additional modeling utilities, such as using high level - DLIM (hl-DLIM) parameters for easy creation of new DLIM instances through a model creation wizard.
