BookSim Interconnection Network Simulator

BookSim is a cycle-accurate interconnection network simulator. Originally developed for and introduced with the Principles and Practices of Interconnection Networks book, its functionality has since been continuously extended. The current major release, BookSim 2.0, supports a wide range of topologies such as mesh, torus and flattened butterfly networks, provides diverse routing algorithms and includes numerous options for customizing the network's router microarchitecture.

The source code for BookSim is available on GitHub.

A work-in-progress manual can be found here.

We maintain two mailing lists related to BookSim: The booksim-users list is intended for general discussion and questions relating to the use of BookSim, while booksim-devel is intended for development-related discussions.

For further information regarding BookSim, please contact Nan 'Ted' Jiang or Daniel Becker.
