As described in this paper, the GUI interface to the Sunflower Simulator provides facilities for splitting up your simulations of networks of processing elements over multiple hosts—indeed, the GUI was implemented specifically to enable this.


Research in any field requires tools that enable the modeling of system characteristics of interest. Such tools, whether analytic, simulative or hardware, must enable the accurate representation of all the aspects of a system that may influence the system’s perceived utility.
Software tools (notably, simulators) provide low cost of entry, flexibility, and low turn-around time in [...]
