Introduction

If you have to do experiments with many simulation runs and different starting parameters SeSAm offers the possibility to distribute simulation runs within the local network. Simulation results are saved to the hard drive and can be collected after the remote simulations are finished. Use this feature to utiltize unsused computer power!!

Documentation

First you have to install SeSAm and all required plugins (for the model you intend to simulate) on every machine in you LAN.

This promgrams allow you to start, and configure the remote simulation service. It will work in the background with a low priority. If the machine is unused the full system power is available. A schedule can be defined for allowed simulation times (e.g. at night).
