Abstract

StarBED is a network testbed begun in 2002 focused on running actual program code for software and hardware implementations. As hardware technologies develops, its facilities such as PCs and network equipments have been updated and we additionally developed SpringOS, a software support suite consisting of numerous program modules. The performance of StarBED and SpringOS increases as their equipments are upgraded and architecture is changed in terms of software and hardware. This paper gives an overview of the current StarBED architecture and SpringOS functions and then shows the results of performance evaluation as of October 2010.
