      Dear Friends,

      We just announced the release of GridSim toolkit (see msg below), which can be
      used for simulating schedulers for cluster and grid computing. Those of you interested
      in scheduling on clusters and performance evaluation may be interested in it.

      Wish you a happy and prosperous new year.
      cheers
      Raj

      Dear Colleague:

      We are pleased to announce the release of GridSim Toolkit (version 1.0) along with source
      code under the GPL license. It is available for download from
      the GridSim Project website:
      http://www.csse.monash.edu.au/~rajkumar/gridsim/
      http://www.buyya.com/gridsim/

      GridSim, a Java based discrete event simulation package, supports modeling and simulation
      of heterogeneous parallel and distributed systems (such as SMPs, clusters, P2P?, and
      Grids), users and applications. It enables design and performance evaluation of scheduling
      algorithms and systems. The toolkit provides concurrent entities for creation of
      application tasks, mapping of tasks to resources and their management. It has a number of
      concurrent entities that extend GridSim class to represent Grid Resource, Grid Information
      Service (GIS), Grid Statistics, etc. The users also create concurrent entities such as
      multiple Grid Users and Resources by extending the
      GridSim class. All entities can communicate using Send and Receive primitives. A sample
      implementation of a Grid Resource Broker that simulates Nimrod-G like scheduler is
      included in the current software release.

      For further details, please see our project website or contact us by email.

      The toolkit will undergo continuos enhancement and we welcome your participation and
      encourage you to become co-author of future versions of the software.

      INVITATION: If you would like to become a member of the GridSim community and author
      modules and involve in enhancement, please let us know.

      We welcome your comments, suggestions, cooperation, and involvement in improving the
      toolkit.

      We would like to take this opportunity to wish you a happy and prosperous new year.

      Thank you very much.

      Best wishes
      The GridSim Team
