Title Optimal performance of distributed simulation programs
Date 1987
Description This paper describes a technique to analyze the potential speedup of distributed simulation programs. A distributed simulation strategy is proposed which minimizes execution time through the use of an oracle to control the simulation. Because the strategy relies on an oracle, it cannot be used for practical simulations. However the strategy facilitates performance evaluations of distributed simulation strategies by providing a useful point of comparison and can be used to determine the suitability of specific applications for implementation on a parallel computer. Based on the proposed strategy, a tool has been developed to determine the maximum performance which can be achieved from a distributed simulation program. In this paper we describe the technique and its use in evaluating the parallelism available in distributed simulators of parallel computer systems.
