ABMS assignment 4: Scaling

Work with your standing ovation project, investigate computational versus network limitations under the following conditions:

  • Different levels of abstraction
    • All persons in a single module
    • n persons pr. module
    • One module pr. person
  • Number of whiteboards
    • Few vs. many whiteboards
    • Psyclone on a single machine vs. distribute whiteboards over many computers
  • Number of messages
    • Message sent whenever a person changes status (many small messages)
    • fewer larger messages with more information (e.g. module sends messages with information on all it’s persons)

Suggest optimal settings based on using 4 computers (gola 4-7)

  • How many person are you able to run
  • Speed of results
  • Minimal number of lost messages
  • etc.
