Breathing Time Buckets and Time Warp are two different approaches to optimistic parallel discrete event simulation. To explore their relative performance we ran two simple simulations using transputer-based implementations of the two algorithms. To exercise the two implementations thoroughly, we varied the value of the following parameters for one of the(More)
We report on a comparative study of the performance of shared and distributed memory parallel simulation algo rithms on a large-scale military logistics simulation, and describe the nature of the application and its parallelisa tion in some detail. We demonstrate that the patterns of communication in the simulation were such that a standard implementation(More)
