This paper provides an overview of new facilities for performance analysis using Coloured Petri Nets and the tool CPN Tools. Coloured Petri Nets is a formal modeling language that is well suited for modeling and analyzing large and complex systems. The new facilities include support for collecting data during simulations, for generating different kinds of performance-related output, and for running multiple simulation replications. A simple example of a network protocol is used to illustrate the flexibility of the new facilities.
