Modeling A Scalable High-Speed Interconnect with Stochastic Petri Nets

Kotov, Vadim; Cherkasova, Ludmila; Rokicki, Tomas; Ciardo, Gianfranco



Abstract: This paper presents an approach to using stochastic Petri nets to model large-scale concurrent systems, in our case, a scalable computer interconnect. We show how Stochastic Petri net models can exploit the symmetry of the system to construct a tractable, but approximate, analytic model, and that they can yield results very close to those of a detailed simulation model, with much less computational effort.
