An algorithm for optimistic distributed simulations
Responsible organisation

Abstract [en]

Distributed simulation has traditionally suffered from synchronization constraints that reduce the speedup significantly below the theoretical maximum. One solution approach are optimistic synchronization algorithms, allowing some nodes to advance in model time. In this paper, we present a novel algorithm that does not share the typical rollback costs of optimistic simulation, at the expense of restrictions on the design of simulation models. We have implemented that algorithm in an agent-based simulation framework, and evaluate its performance gains through measurements on actual simulation models.
