SimGrid : simulation of distributed applications

Participants : Arnaud Legrand [correspondant] , Lucas Schnorr, Pierre Navarro, Sascha Hunold, Laurent Bobelin.

SimGrid is a toolkit that provides core functionalities for the simulation of distributed applications in heterogeneous distributed environments. The specific goal of the project is to facilitate research in the area of distributed and parallel application scheduling on distributed computing platforms ranging from simple network of workstations to Computational Grids.

We have released one new major version (3.6) of SimGrid (June 2011) and two minor versions (June and October 2011). These versions include our current work on visualization, analysis of large scale distributed systems, and extremely scalable simulation. See also the web page http://simgrid.gforge.inria.fr/ .
