In this paper we present MCoreSim, an open-source simulation framework for massively parallel and many-core com- puting systems based on OMNeT++. The simulator supports tile-based architectures with distributed memory and mesh-based interconnects. Its primary purpose is to allow for in- vestigations on the impact of the heterogeneous in-chip communication latencies, as arising due to the network-on-a-chip structure of future and emerging many-core processors, on the performance of the hosted applications. We plan to use MCoreSim to study the variety of possible choices in realizing a suitable software stack for these systems, especially in terms of the choices at the kernel design level.

Abstract

In this paper we present MCoreSim, an open-source simulation framework for massively parallel and many-core com- puting systems based on OMNeT++. The simulator supports tile-based architectures with distributed memory and mesh-based interconnects. Its primary purpose is to allow for in- vestigations on the impact of the heterogeneous in-chip communication latencies, as arising due to the network-on-a-chip structure of future and emerging many-core processors, on the performance of the hosted applications. We plan to use MCoreSim to study the variety of possible choices in realizing a suitable software stack for these systems, especially in terms of the choices at the kernel design level.
