score is a general purpose discrete event simulator written in rust. The key types are:
- Simulation is responsible for coordinating the execution of the simulation.
- Components are used to define the structure of the simulation. Active components have a thread used to handle events.
- Events are named messages sheduled to be delivered to a component at a specific time. Events may have am optional payload (which must satisfy the Any and Send traits).
- The Store is where components persist state. (Using the store allows state to be viewed and changed using GUI tools like sdebug and allows side effects to be carefully managed.)
- Components use an Effector to make changes. Components can use a an effector to log, change their own state within the store, and schedule events to be sent to arbitrary components.
score's goals include:
- It should be flexible enough to simulate pretty much any sort of discrete event simulation.
- It should be efficient and take advantage of multiple cores. Currently all components that have a scheduled event at the same time process the events in parallel. It should also be possible to leverage effectors to do speculative parallel execution.
- Side effects should be carefully controlled, In particular the only way for a component to affect another component should be via an event.
- Simulation execution should be deterministic across different runs and across platforms.
- It should support off line analysis of simulation results. (This isn't in yet but shouldn't be hard to implement).
- There should be a GUI tool to analyze simulations as they run.
- 0.2.0 - added an embedded REST server to support GUIs like sdebug
- 0.1.0 - lots of improvements
- 0.0.1 - initial release
