Abstract : We simulate several variants of a class of queueing networks corresponding to different system parameter values or operating policies - simultaneously. One clock mechanism is used to drive all the variants. This clock synchronizes the system trajectories such that the same event takes place at the same time at all systems. This synchronization is the basis of the massively parallel algorithms we develop. Implementation of the algorithms on the massively parallel Connection Machine and the implications of the approach for performance optimization is discussed.
