This paper proposes a critical path-like analyzer to predict the amount of memory consumed in a specific Chandy-Misra simulation: Segments of code are inserted into the existing sequential simulation program, and this modified simulation program is called a memory analyzer. The amount of memory needed in the corresponding Chandy-Misra simulation is computed along with the execution of the memory analyzer. Experiments to evaluate the analyzer are in progress.
