Abstract

ParSim is an efficient software simulator for parallel and distributed programs on virtual parallel machines. ParSim provides the system specification language ParSpec, which allows the description of a large class of parallel systems on an abstract level.

ParSim produces a deterministic simulation. By instrumenting the binary code of the program, ParSim counts CPU cycles to determine the runtime of short fragments of code.

Explicit control of the processor and I/O utilization can be used to insert nonintrusive monitoring facilities into the program.
