Analysis of parallel replicated simulations under a completion time constraint
Peter W. Glynn, Philip Heidelberger
Pages: 3-23
DOI: 10.1145/102810.102811
We analyze properties associated with a simple yet effective way to exploit parallel processors in discrete event simulations: averaging the results of multiple, independent replications that are run, in parallel, on multiple processors. We...

Performance bounds on parallel self-initiating discrete-event simulations
David M. Nicol
Pages: 24-50
DOI: 10.1145/102810.102812
This paper considers the use of massively parallel architectures to execute discrete-event simulations of what we term “self-initiating” models. A logical process in a self-initiating model schedules its own state reevaluation times,...

A study of time warp rollback mechanisms
Yi-Bing Lin, Edward D. Lazowska
Pages: 51-72
DOI: 10.1145/102810.102813
The Time Warp “optimistic” approach is one of the most important parallel simulation protocols. Time Warp synchronizes processes via rollback. The original rollback mechanism called lazy cancellation...

Yi-Bing Lin, Edward D. Lazowska
Pages: 73-83
