ProFiDo - Processes Fitting Toolkit Dortmund

The Processes Fitting Toolkit Dortmund (ProFiDo) provides a graphical user interface supporting the use of a variety of tools for the fitting and modelling of arrival processes. ProFiDo's key features include

  • a consistent use of commandline-oriented Tools for Process Fitting
  • a GUI for graphical workflow specification
  • XML based interchange format for process descriptions
  • easy to extend by XML based GUI configuration and converter scripts
  • visualization tool for plotting pdf, cdf and lag-k autocorrelation coefficients
  • support for PH distributions, Markovian Arrival Processes and ARMA and ARTA Processes
  • easy integration of fitted stochastic processes into simulation models using the Arrival Process Module for OMNeT++

ProFiDo is free software, released under the terms of the GNU General Public License version 2.
