Large-scale P2P distributed resources that aggregate and share resources over wide-area networks present major new challenges for scientists. This chapter focuses on the challenges to enable scalable, high-level simulation of applications, middleware, resources and networks to support scientific and systematic study of large scale distributed applications and environments, specifically designed for P2P systems. Its contributions are on the intelligent control of distributed P2P systems, where simulation is used in decision making as a way to predict future performance under some control law in question.
