<p lang="en">Simulation models have been developed in order to foresee characteristics of networks, systems or protocols when doing tests in laboratories are very expensive or even impossible. This paper presents a simulation model of a multiprocessor network traffic analysis system. The model, which is based on closed networks of queues, evaluates the efficiency of the system depending on the hardware/software platform features. Therefore, this model is able to estimate performance early in the design and development stages simulating a multiprocessor architecture in charge of analysing network traffic. The goodness of the model will be checked by comparing analytical results with practical ones obtained in laboratory using a traffic analysis system that runs in a multiprocessor platform.</p>
