<p>GMA, a generic graphical modeling and analysis package that satisfies both commercial users and performance evaluation researchers is described. Using a graphical interface, both novices and experts can analyze the performance of diverse networks simply by loading a configuration file and traffic data. GMA accommodates a variety of networks and modeling techniques. Its structure and use are described, and a simple four-node network is analyzed as an example.</p>
