> The network will have a number of routers with input ports and output ports and crossbars between them. I would like to simulate the protocol. This would be an event driven simulator. It would be at a high level, leaving out many details. I would like it to be fast and be able to run it on several processors.
Crossbar is certainly easier using lazy lists of events.
Like those used in Hawk: http://eprints.kfupm.edu.sa/66296/1/66296.pdf
Event-driven approach is good for asynchronous behaviour, like
combinatorial logic etc. For single-clock clocked logic (and crossbar
is certainly that kind of device) lazy lists are simpler to write and
