>>Subject: Grid/World Wide Computing Simulation tool.
>>We are pleased to announce the release of GridSim Toolkit along with source
>>code. It is available for download from the GridSim Project website:
>>GridSim, a Java based discrete event simulation package, supports
>>modeling and simulation
>>of heterogeneous parallel and distributed systems (such as SMPs,
>>clusters, P2P?, and
>>Grids), users and applications. It enables design and performance
>>evaluation of scheduling
>>algorithms and systems. The toolkit provides concurrent entities for
>>application tasks, mapping of tasks to resources and their management. It
>>has a number of
>>concurrent entities that extend GridSim class to represent Grid Resource,
>>Service (GIS), Grid Statistics, etc. The users also create concurrent
>>entities such as
>>multiple Grid Users and Resources by extending the GridSim class. All
>>communicate using Send and Receive primitives. A sample implementation of
>>a Grid Resource
>>Broker that simulates Nimrod-G like scheduler is included in the current
>>For further details, please see our project website or contact us by email.
>>The toolkit will undergo continuos enhancement and we welcome your
>>encourage you to become co-author of future versions of the software.
>>INVITATION: If you would like to become a member of the GridSim community
>>modules and involve in enhancement, please let us know.
>>We welcome your comments, suggestions, cooperation, and involvement in
>>We would like to take this opportunity to wish you a happy and prosperous
>>Thank you very much.
