Gollywhomper: A SpiNNaker interconnect simulation
This is a simulator for playing with the SpiNNaker system, in particular the effects of off-board interconnection via S-ATA SpiNN-Links.
The model is coded relatively nicely and lives in ./model/. The experiments in the root were put together in a hurry and do not exhibit quite the same level of fit and finish.
For experiment scripts see:
Take a look in experiments.sh for the values of all experiments used by me in my write-up.
The staticly defined values in experiment.py define the basic experimental parameters used based on conversations with staff in the department.
The spinnaker is a sail. A gennaker is a cross between a spinnaker and a genoa sail. A gollywhomper was an early form of gennaker used in the 1870s. It also sounds hilarious.
