A Technique for the Distributed Simulation of Parallel Computers
 by Livio Ricciulli.

Abstract
A new technique for the efficient asynchronous discrete event driven simulation of parallel shared-memory computers is proposed. Our execution-driven methodology, while introducing minimal synchronization overhead to maintain a coherent distributed event causality relation, allows complete virtualization of the design at all levels and therefore is very flexible. We give a detailed description of the proposed technique together with some preliminary performance results we obtained by implementing our parallelization technique on a CM-5 computer.
