CSIM18 simulation models are often built as Microsoft Windows console-mode programs. A tool named REMOTE was developed to enable automatic, remote execution of CSIM18 models (and of other console mode programs) in a Windows environment. A master PC distributes the programs to remote PCs and collects the output files as the remote model executions complete. The status of remotely executing models can be viewed at the master. The REMOTE tool utilizes idle non-dedicated PC CPU cycles during nights and weekends to speed-up the model execution phase of a large modeling project. The REMOTE executable can be distributed via email attachment and does not need any special installation or configuration. REMOTE is currently being used in an ongoing investigation of new variable-length packet switch architectures. REMOTE is freely available from the author.
