Simulation Time

Since the verification query time is less than or equal to the current time, tex2html_wrap_inline833 , rollbacks due to the verification query will take the LP back to the current time. Thus GVT as defined in [7] is no longer a lower bound on the simulation rollback time. The lower bound is now always tex2html_wrap_inline833 . GVT is still required in order to determine how far into the future the predictive network management system has gone.
