Résumé : Complexity and lack of adequate performance evaluation tools for computer networks make them analytically intractable and numerically prohibitive to evaluate. Simulation is therefore the only available evaluation method. Simulation of such complex networks is usually very slow. Using multiple processors appears to be a promising approach. In this paper, the applicability of different general purpose distributed simulation algorithms to the domain of computer network simulation is discussed. Several ways of introducing parallelism are discussed and evaluated. © 1989.
