On the processor scheduling problem in time warp synchronization
Francesco Quaglia, Vittorio Cortellessa
Pages: 143-175
DOI: 10.1145/643114.643115
Time Warp is a synchronization mechanism for parallel/distributed simulation. It allows logical processes (LPs) to execute events without the guarantee of a causally consistent execution. Upon the detection of a causality violation, rollback...

Parallel simulation of chip-multiprocessor architectures
Matthew Chidester, Alan George
Pages: 176-200
DOI: 10.1145/643114.643116
Chip-multiprocessor (CMP) architectures present a challenge for efficient simulation, combining the requirements of a detailed microprocessor simulator with that of a tightly-coupled parallel system. In this paper, a distributed simulator for target...

Rapid model parameterization from traffic measurements
Kun-Chan Lan, John Heidemann
Pages: 201-229
DOI: 10.1145/643114.643117
The utility of simulations and analysis heavily relies on good models of network traffic. While network traffic constantly is changing over time, existing approaches typically take years from collecting trace, analyzing the data to finally generating...

A two-stage modeling and simulation process for web-based modeling and simulation
Taewoo Kim, Jinho Lee, Paul Fishwick
Pages: 230-248
DOI: 10.1145/643114.643118
The area of web-based simulation has thrived primarily on novel methods for executing models, with contributions to both client and server side applications based in Java and other web-accessible languages. However, there has not been a commensurate...
