A Framework for Performance Analysis of Parallel Discrete Event Simulators
A framework for performance analysis of parallel discrete event simulators is presented. The centerpiece of this framework is a platform-independent Workload Specification Language (WSL). WSL is a language that allows the characterization of simulation models using a set of fundamental performancecritical parameters. WSL also implements a facility for representing real models. For each simulator to be tested, a WSL translator is used to generate synthetic platform-specific simulation models that conform to the performance characteristics captured by the WSL description. Accordingly, sets of portable simulation models that explore the effects of the different parameters, individually or collectively, on the performance can be constructed. The construction of the workload simulation models is assisted using a Synthetic Workload Generator (SWG). The utility of the system is demonstrated with the generation of a representative set of experiments. The described framework can be used to ...
