This report (LaTeX source) was written as an assignment for a course in development of distributed services. It talks about the modeling and simulation of a distributed computing system based on BOINC. This system is called Generic Distributed Exact Cover Solver (DECS) which is a separate project I’ve been working on. For the simulation it uses GPenSIM, which is a package for MATLAB to model and simulate Petri nets. The GPenSIM files used in this project are also available for download.
