|Horizon – Scalable Parallel Network Simulation|
|Wednesday, 08 June 2011 11:27|
Horizon is a parallel simulation extension of OMNeT++ that focuses on multicore and/or multiprocessor machines. Horizon employs a centralized (master-worker) parallel event execution scheme which uses a conservative synchronization algorithm. This synchronization scheme is based on a new modeling paradigm that annotates discrete events with durations in order to create an opportunity for parallel processing. Horizon was originally written for OMNeT++ 3.3, and has been ported to 4.x recently.
