Abstract [en]

Scalable simulation in a cluster computing environment depends

on effective mechanisms for load balancing.

This paper presents an object-oriented software architecture

and specifies communication protocols which

support efficient load balancing via object migration in

cluster based PDES.

A general decomposition of functionality is given in the context

of a flexible adaptable architecture for migration

and load adjustment.

The key contributions are the development of a general

architecture into which specific migration policies and

load balancing heuristics can be easily integrated

and a specification of the communication

protocols required.

An implementation of the proposed architecture

using PVM for communication indicates the approach is both

flexible and well suited to customization.

This enhances simulation scalability and usability

in computing platforms including both

traditional cluster computing and Web-computing.
