Parallel and distributed simulation of Parallel DEVS models

In: Proceedings of the SpringSim '07, DEVS Integrative M&S Symposium, pp. 249-256, SCS.

Distributed simulation can speed up the execution of models significantly. We introduce a new simulation algorithm and present partitioning and load balancing techniques that are tailored to the efficient distributed execution of PDEVS. We base our elaborations on the idea of minimizing inter-processor communication, since this is a major bottleneck in distributed PDEVS simulation. Additionally, experimental results are provided which compare the performance of this new approach to alternative algorithms.
