ACI Software Simulator

The Cisco ACI is the unifying point for automation, management, monitoring, and programmability for the Cisco ACI fabric. The Cisco ACI Simulator is a virtual appliance that provides a simulated Cisco ACI environment. Cisco ACI Simulator provides centralized access to all fabric information, optimizes the application lifecycle for scale and performance, and supports flexible application provisioning across physical and virtual resources. The Cisco ACI Simulator provides full-featured Cisco APIC controller software along with a simulated fabric infrastructure of leaf switches and spine switches in one physical server. Because the Cisco ACI Simulator includes Cisco APIC instances with real production software, you can use it to understand features, exercise APIs, and initiate integration with third-party orchestration systems and applications. The Cisco ACI Simulator includes simulated switches, so you cannot validate a data path. The native GUI and command-line interface (CLI) of Cisco APIC use the same APIs that are published for third parties.

Re: ACI Software Simulator

Hi,

Great but old...

Simulator is End of Life.

Search for "APIC-SIM-S2" here:

EDIT: Forget what I wrote, I was referring to the physical appliance simulator.

Hi Chris, 

 

We are launching the ACI software simulator in about a week with 4.2 release. We will update the links and the data sheet. Image will be posted here

Re: ACI Software Simulator

Bhanu,

 

Do you have any details on the simulator you can share?

Re: ACI Software Simulator

4.2i still locks up the VM with 100% CPU at random. Any ideas?
