We describe a distributed agent based epidemic model that is capable of easily simulating several hundred million agents. The model is adaptable to shared-memory and distributed-memory architectures. Several problems are addressed to enable the distributed simulation: allocation of agents to available compute nodes, periodic synchronization of compute nodes, and efficient communication between compute nodes. We assert that our modeling scheme is easily adaptable to different hardware… CONTINUE READING
