This paper is the users manual for the PPP simulator. The PPP simulator is an extension of Tep Dobrys PLM simulator thus the reader is assumed to be familiar with the PLM simulator users manual. The PPP simulator provides an approximate modeling of the Aquarius multiprocessor system. Using the simulator, a user can run programs to completion, run individual processes one instruction at a time, examine the current state of any process, and obtain performance measurements. The simulator is still under development changes will be reflected in later versions of this manual. The main difference between the PPP and the PLM is the difference between their underlying execution models The PLM uses a sequential execution model, while the PPP uses a parallel execution model. This parallelism is achieved using processes, communicating via messages.
