QCNSim: a simulator for the Quake-Catcher Network — This project consists of building a new version of a simulator for the Quake-Catcher Network and the underlying BOINC instance of volunteer computing. The simulator aims at enabling investigation of different configurations of the BOINC network and network topologies, such as the existence of multiple BOINC servers and clustering of QCN-hosts. In addition, the new simulator will allow exploring robustness in face of network failures, and formulation of possible approaches to mitigate issues arising from these failures.
