A stochastic simulation model is developed, using the SLAM II simulation language, to study the dynamics and performance of a small data communication network. The simulation program models pertinent aspects of Defense Data Network (DDN) protocols. The effect of changes in node-to-node and host-to-host retransmission timeout intervals upon expected response time is studied using the model.
