Summary:
This thesis deals with simulation of a conflict-free token-passing protocol for local area bus networks. The primary emphasis of this simulation study is to observe the effects of token holding time on the performance of the network. Token holding time is adjusted to account for three types of service disciplines: purely non-exhaustive, non-exhaustive and exhaustive. Network performance for these three service disciplines is compared to determine, which one of the three gives a relatively better performance. Besides throughput and delay, a more compact form of performance measure called "power", has also been used in this study. Power is simply a ratio of throughput and delay. This study has shown that the token holding time has significant effect on the performance of a local area network. Simulation results of this study, are presented in terms of throughput, delay, power, logical ring size, token circulation time, efficiency/overhead versus offered load and token holding time. Some results are also presented in terms of histograms.
