Simulations are used to find optimum answers for problems in wide areas. Active queue management algorithms such as RED, GRED, typically use simulators like ns2 which is an open source simulator or OPNET, OMNET which are commercial simulators. However, beside the benefits of using simulators like having defined modules, parameters. There are problems such as complexity, large integrated components and licensing cost. To have an ideal balance in mentioned benefits and problems and to further complement the repository of simulators, this study presents the description of a general-purpose programming language based discrete event simulation for active queue management. This research has focused at developing a discrete event simulator to implement one of active queue management algorithms which is called AGRED. The results showed that the developed simulator has successfully produced the same results with an average deviation of 1.5% as previous simulator in AGRED.
