Trigger Data Flow Simulation
Last Update - October 10, 1995
By simulating the behavior of data flow through the TRIGGER/DAQ architecture
of STAR a better understanding of this architecture with respect to data
transmission speeds, buffer sizes, data input rates, etc. can be obtained.
Trigger deadtime and efficiency may be studied and possible throughput
bottlenecks revealed. The object-oriented simulation language MODSIM II
has been used exclusively in the development of this behavioral model.
