Parallel queueing models for SimPy

Project description


Documentation Status PyPI version GitHub release

This repository hosts the "ParallelQueue" project which is currently in its early stages of development. This package aims to allow for easier implementation of novel parallel processing approaches in Python DES packages (especially SimPy).

WARNING: The GitHub master build can be (and likely is) different from the PyPi build, being more up-to-date. For the time being, use the current GitHub master branch if starting a new project, using PyPi if and only if you require that particular version (e.g., for code stability as it is updated less-frequently). This disparity is likely to change with the maturity of this project which is still in early development.


From this repository:

git clone
cd ParallelQueue
python install

From PyPi (read Warning first!):

pip install parallelqueue

Current Goals

  1. Introduce more common models into base_models.
  2. Optimize SimPy boilerplate common to all models by incorporating Cython.
  3. Incorporate for better progress visualization and simulation parallelization.
