I am one of the main developers of the ALEVIN simulation software for Virtual Network Embeddings. It is a versatile tool to compare and rate VNE algorithms via empiric evaluation. It has a very flexible scenario generation component and supports a large number of metrics. Moreover, its architecture allows it to be easily extended with user-provided functionality. It has been used successfully in multiple projects throughout the world. Check it out on SourceForge.
