In this paper,a protocol-based modeling and simulation method of performance evaluation for heavy traffic and transient LAN is proposed. In the method a node on a LAN is modeled as a set of detailed communication protocol models. By parallel and event driven processing of the models, high accuracy and high time-resolution of evaluation of LAN behaviors can be obtained at multi-layer protocols. The LANs at computer education sites have highly loaded peaks, and it is very hard to design large scale educational LANs. Proposed method can be used to evaluate such cases of heavy traffic and transient LAN.
