    This paper discusses modelling and simulation of multi-tier enterprise IT system. The layers in multi-tier architecture consist of web layer, application layer and database layer. Entities in the multi-tier system have been abstracted out into 3 categories- consumer, resource and router. Existing modelling and simulation frameworks for multi-tier systems focus on power management or performance of load balancing algorithms. Our framework enables seamless modelling, simulation, and experimentation of a wide range of what-if scenarios in multi-tier systems while encapsulating all the variations that arise due to configuration, composition, design and deployment. As an illustration, we discuss and simulate prediction of bottleneck scenario with results.
