Animated view of routing flows

Specs: xp, p4 2m

I'm putting together a simple animation using Powerpoint to show how data would be routed in a small network under various conditions including link failures.

Is there a software application that will simulate network performance and present in a graphical way like I'm trying to do with powerpoint? Hopefully something cheap I can buy for personnal use.

Any thoughts appreciated!

Thanks

You mean something that actually shows animation? Or do you just want to demonstrate the topology?

that actually shows the flow of data for a single conversation to illustrate how the network behaves under several conditions including link failure

I've never really tried this, but I read something about it somewhere:

BGP is generally what is used to route between AS's on the internet & automagically routes around dead links.

'BGP Simulation' returns some interesting stuff on google

hope that helps
