Model of distributed computations in virtual testbed

Ivan Gankevich, Alexander Degtyarev

Virtual testbed is a complex system of modeling natural and anthropogenic phenomenon and a nature of problems being solved is so demanding to computer resources that it requires efficient model of computations to be developed in order to complete experiments in time. Analyses have shown that such a model should provide resilience to node failures, ensure transactional behavior of computations and also be capable of both static and dynamic load balancing. The model has been developed on the basis of actor model which is analogous to hierarchical model governing work of a team with a large number of participants. The model was adapted to accommodate its usage in a distributed environment and research results can be used to embed it in a compiler that translates source code of a sequential program into parallel directives of the model.
