A peer-to-peer architectural model deﬁnes an overlay network topology and a routing strategy. If these aspects are tied together by a deterministic logical model, we say that the architecture is structured. Otherwise, we say it is unstructured. Based on these assumptions, in recent years many complex P2P architectural models have been deﬁned, their performance evaluation being carried out mainly by means of simulative tools. However, there is an emerging need for a general-purpose tool, enabling large-scale overlay network simulations, yet also providing ready-to-use complex building blocks. The widely known PeerSim simulator addresses the ﬁrst issue quite eﬀectively, although it appears quite limited with respect to several important aspects, i.e. churn modeling. In this paper we propose P2PAM as a PeerSim enhancement providing a rather complete framework for peer-to-peer architectural modeling. P2PAM eﬀectiveness is demonstrated by showing how it has been used to rapidly develop simulations of two interesting systems, namely JXTA and HALO.
