Download BRITE


BRITE is no longer supported by its developers, but questions can be asked on the brite-users mailing list.

The latest version of BRITE requires a Java 2 (JDK1.3) or higher compliant VM installed.   If you do not have Java installed, you may download the older standalone C++ version of BRITE without the GUI.  You can find out the version of Java installed on your machine by typing: "java -version" at a command prompt. 
Please note that BRITE has been successfully tested in Solaris and Linux only. BRITE should run on any platform that has a JDK1.3 compliant Java virtual machine and an ANSI C++ compiler. If you can run it on a different platform, please let us know
All downloads include complete source code and sample BRITE configuration files.  You can download BRITE here.
General questions on using or installing BRITE can be asked by sending email to brite-users@cs.bu.edu. You may choose to automatically subscribe to this list when you download BRITE. Alternatively, you may subscribe to this list by sending a blank email to brite-users-request@cs.bu.edu with the body of the email containing "subscribe" (without the quotes). 
Download Contributed Utilities
These are contributed by users and not bundled with the current release of BRITE:
  • Export to the OmNet++ Simulator contributed by Andras Varga. Download patch here
  • Analysis routines for BRITE topologies contributed by Mathias Golombek. Download source here. These analysis routines compute degree distributions, clustering coefficients, characteristic path length and hop distribution for BRITE topologies.
  • Routines to compute shortest paths contributed by Anukool Lakhina. Download java source here. This is an implementation of Dijkstra's algorithm on BRITE's graph data structure for computing single-source shortest paths to all-destinations.
  • NGS BRITE-visualiser contributed by Steve Webb. More information here. A java program to help visualize BRITE topologies.
