Performance and dependability evaluation of scalable massively parallel computer systems with conjoint simulation
Axel Hein, Mario Dal Cin
Pages: 333-373
DOI: 10.1145/295251.295254
Computer systems are becoming more and more a part of our daily life; business and industry rely on their service, and the health of human beings depends on their correct functioning. Computer systems used for critical tasks have to be...

Design-time simulation of a large-scale, distributed object system
Svend Frølund, Pankaj Garg
Pages: 374-400
DOI: 10.1145/295251.295255
We present a case study in using simulation at design time to predict the performance and scalability properties of a large-scale distributed object system. The system, called Consul, is a network management system designing to support hundreds...

Minimum cost adaptive synchronization: experiments with the ParaSol system
Edward Mascarenhas, Felipe Knop, Reuben Pasquini, Vernon Rego
Pages: 401-430
DOI: 10.1145/295251.295257
We present a novel adaptive synchronization algorithm, called the minimum average cost (MAC) algorithm, in the context of the parasol parallel simulation system. ParaSol is a multithreaded system for parallel simulation on shared- and...

Technical note: a hierarchical computer architecture design and simulation environment
P. S. Coe, F. W. Howell, R. N. Ibbett, L. M. Williams
Pages: 431-446
DOI: 10.1145/295251.295259
A hierarchical computer architecture design and simulation environment (HASE) has been developed at the University of Edinburgh. HASE allows rapid development and exploration of computer architectures at multiple levels of abstraction,...
