Analysis of Efficient Syncrhonization in Bulk-synchronous Parallel Discrete-event Simulation

M. Marín (Chile)



Event dependencies associated with correct parallel discrete event simulations are preserved by using synchronization protocols. These protocols ensure that at the end of the simulation each event has taken place in chronological order in its respective logical process. To this end, the protocols apply a method to advance in the simulation time which can be synchronous or asynchronous. This paper presents an analysis of the relevant factors affecting the performance of known protocols for the bulk-synchronous parallel model of computing.
