GBLENDER is an intuitive user-friendly visual interface to formulate and process queries in graph databases using a frequent-structure based approach. As the application is not released on a public domain, there is a lack of users available to evaluate the performance of the application. To address this problem, this project proposed the development and implementation of a simulator that applies concepts of Human Computer Interaction to visually formulate and process queries on GBLENDER. As GBLENDER seeks to exploit the latency between query formulations by prefetching graph results and pruning false results, analysis of the predicted user time and the prefetch time would provide useful information on the performance of GBLENDER. We have included various modifiable settings like adjusting the database indexing settings, user skills level and environment to examine the performance at different levels. The raw results collected were displayed in many types of charts, making it digestible for researchers to quickly locate certain data.
