Delaitre, Thierry and Ribeiro-Justo, George R. and Spies, François and Winter, Stephen (1997) A graphical toolset for simulation modelling of parallel systems. Parallel Computing, 22 (13). pp. 1823-1836. ISSN 0167-8191Full text not available from this repository.
In this paper, a simulation model for incorporation within a performance-oriented parallel software development environment is presented. This development environment is composed of a graphical design tool, a simulation facility, and a visualisation tool. Simulation allows parallel program performance to be predicted and design alternatives to be compared. The target parallel system models a virtual machine composed of a cluster of workstations interconnected by a local area network. The simulation model architecture is modular and extensible which allows re-configuration of the platform. The model description and the validation experiments which have been conducted to assess the correctness and the accuracy of the model are also presented.
