Annotation
A simple CSP-based model of cluster computing is presented. A Transim simulation tool, originally intended for simulation of transputer networks, can be used to simulate various parallel applications running on workstation clusters. Since communication latency is quite high in clusters, prediction of processor utilization, obtainable speedup and execution time are of interest. The Transim tool enables to find all these figures in minimum time and with minimum effort. As an example, a solution of a large system of (1000+) linear equations on up to 8 workstations connected via Ethernet to a hardware router is simulated and results are compared to real execution based on MPI.
