Software Partitioning Schemes for Advanced Simulation Computer Systems. Final Report.
Clymer, S. J.
Conducted to design software partitioning techniques for use by the Air Force to partition a large flight simulator program for optimal execution on alternative configurations, this study resulted in a mathematical model which defines characteristics for an optimal partition, and a manually demonstrated partitioning algorithm design which implements heuristic controls based on the mathematical model statement. This report reviews the study objectives, background, approach, and results; defines the software partitioning problem environment, partitioning goals, and alternative approaches; presents the technical details of the software partitioning algorithm which was developed and manually demonstrated under this contract; addresses implementation considerations; and recommends a schedule of tasks for algorithm automation verification and validation. A brief recapitulation of the study findings, related work, and areas of further study concludes the report. Appendices include user inputs and report formats. (CHC)
