GSPN-Based Analysis of Storage Infrastructures for Rendering System
By taking transmission delay into account, the optimization of distributed rendering environment (DRE) was concerned in this paper. Considering distributed animation rendering environment as the object of study, two Generalized Stochastic Petri Nets (GSPN) models for “completely distributed storage” infrastructure (CDSI) and “hybrid distributed storage” one (HDSI) were constructed respectively. Moreover, by choosing average time delay as the performance index, analysis was conducted by applying the equivalent formulas for solving Stochastic Petri Nets (SPN) models of serial and parallel types to these two GSPN models. Based on comparison of such models’ numerical simulation results, conclusion on these two infrastructures’ advantages and disadvantages is deprived thereby. It offers important quantitative foundations for choosing appropriate storage schemes and scheduling algorithms.
