The availability of commercial multiprocessors gives a new importance to distributed simulation. However, while existing techniquesexploit some levels of parallelism in the discrete-event simulation algorithm, they are usually targeted to specific applicationsand architectures. In the general scheme presented here, the algorithm is executed in parrallel using a compilation strategythat can be implemented on shared-memory multiprocessors.
