Abstract : This project investigated techniques for improving performance and scalability of parallel discrete event simulation systems on multicore and many core processors and clusters of multicores. Specifically, we designed and optimized a multithreaded version of ROSS simulator to efficiently execute in these environments. In addition, we also investigated efficient model partitioning schemes and also studies techniques for improving simulation resiliency to the presence of external interference. Finally, we evaluated PDES performance on the Tilera architecture and proposed optimization techniques for that environment.
