|Abstract||The purpose of this paper is to outline, very briefly, the application of simulation techniques to Computer Performance Evaluation (CPE) problems. It covers situations where the use of simulation is appropriate and some cases when it is not. It also includes a discussion of the types of questions simulation can help to answer and how to go about finding the answer.It must be kept in mind always that simulation is a part of the larger world of CPE, in general. The other elements are hardware monitoring, software monitoring, statistical analysis, benchmarking and other analytical tools. Each of these tools has its strengths and weaknesses and must, therefore, be properly applied. Another factor to keep in mind is that the use of these tools is not mutually exclusive, i.e., they should be used to complement each other whenever appropriate rather than totally by themselves. This discussion deals with simulation as <u>a</u> CPE tool, not <u>the</u> CPE tool. More and more, the various tools are being used together to find solutions to problems. Some of these instances will be brought out in the discussions to follow.|

Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) under its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT) has initiated the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project to develop a framework of virtual repository of learning resources with a single-window search facility. Filtered and federated searching is employed to facilitate focused searching so that learners can find out the right resource with least effort and in minimum time. NDLI is designed to hold content of any language and provides interface support for leading vernacular languages, (currently Hindi, Bengali and several other languages are available). It is designed to provide support for all academic levels including researchers and life-long learners, all disciplines, all popular forms of access devices and differently-abled learners. It is being developed to help students to prepare for entrance and competitive examinations, to enable people to learn and prepare from best practices from all over the world and to facilitate researchers to perform inter-linked exploration from multiple sources. It is being developed at Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur.
NDLI is a conglomeration of freely available or institutionally contributed or donated or publisher managed contents. Almost all these contents are hosted and accessed from respective sources. The responsibility for authenticity, relevance, completeness, accuracy, reliability and suitability of these contents rests with the respective organization and NDLI has no responsibility or liability for these. Every effort is made to keep the NDLI portal up and running smoothly unless there are some unavoidable technical issues.
Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD), through its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT), has sponsored and funded the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project.
