AB This paper presents a new approach for parallel machines simulation, based on he discrete-event system specification (DEVS) formalism. Our simulation approach is directed to parallel machine's simulation at the concurrent threads' level and is applicable for analysis the influence of internal algorithm/application concurrency on the performance characteristics of parallel machines. It uses as model's environment an abstraction of the parallel program's concurrent threads. The description of the modeled parallel machine is based on template models of thread. We consider a program environment for discrete-event simulation of parallel computers based on our simulation approach. We present also some performance/utilization results from the simulation of a parallel database machine class, performed with our simulation environment.
