The European Spallation Source (ESS) is currently in the middle of its construction phase. This facility linear accelerator consists of different sections. Superconducting part of this linac will be equipped with spokes and elliptical cavities (like M-Beta and H-Beta types). Various ESS linac components will be delivered by different in-kind partners from Europe. In order to provide a reliable development and evaluation platform hardware-based electronic cavity simulator have been built. This solution is especially useful for Low Level Radio Frequency (LLRF) systems development and integration in case of limited access to real superconducting structures. This contribution presents software tools developed for efficient cavity simulator parameters configuration and management. Solutions based on Python and EPICS framework are presented. Tool adaptation to ESS proposed E3 framework and experience from cavity simulator operation are also discussed.
