An Implementation of the SSF Scalable Simulation Framework on the Cray MTA
Large-scale parallel discrete event simulations of massive networks, such as the Internet, are “Grand Challenge” problems: packet level simulation of even a small fraction of the Internet would consume the resources of the most powerful computers available. We reimplement the SSF Scalable Simulation Framework so we can run large-scale network simulations originally written for DaSSF. Our implementation, CraySSF, is designed for the Cray-MTA, a multithreaded supercomputer architecture developed specifically to address large-scale computations of the kind that are not easily distributed. This paper describes the architecture, implementation issues, and preliminary performance results on a variety of (stock) serial and parallel architectures.
