DACCOSIM is a multi-simulation environment for continuous time systems, relying on FMI standard, making easy the design of a multi-simulation graph, and specially developed for multi-core PC clusters, in order to achieve speedup and size up. However, the distribution of the simulation graph remains complex and is still the responsibility of the simulation developer. This paper introduces DACCOSIM parallel and distributed architecture, and our strategies to achieve efficient multi-simulation graph distribution on multi-core clusters. Some performance experiments on two clusters, running up to 81 simulation components (FMU) and using up to 16 multi-core computing nodes, are shown. Performances measured on our faster cluster exhibit a good scalability, but some limitations of current DACCOSIM implementation are discussed.
