  • Important information on project interview

    Posted by Chun Tung Chou Friday 25 May 2018, 05:45:33 AM.

    This message contains important information on project interview. Please read carefully.

    If you have signed up for an interview time slot using the Doddle poll we provided earlier, we kindly ask you to go to the project web page to check the Google Sheet on what your time slot is. All of you should do this. This is because some students have signed up for multiple time slots and we had to remove the redundant choices. We therefore ask all of you to check the updated Google Sheet to confirm. If you have questions, please email the course tutor whose email address is available on the project page.

    If you haven't signed up yet, the Doodle poll is now closed. Your will need to contact the course tutor directly. His email address is available on the project page.

  • Assignment marks

    The class did pretty well. The class average is 12 marks out of a total of 15. From the forum discussion on Question 2, I saw that some of you were surprised to see that the job arrival rate was bigger than the aggregate service rate. That was done on purpose to get you to think about the problem.

  • Project (Version 1.0)

    Posted by Chun Tung Chou Tuesday 17 April 2018, 12:46:30 AM.

    Project (version 1.0) has just been released. I will discuss it in the lecture today.

  • Project (Version 0.5)

    Posted by Chun Tung Chou Thursday 12 April 2018, 09:08:25 PM, last modified Friday 13 April 2018, 05:32:37 AM.

    For the COMP9334 project, you will simulate computer system called setup/delayedoff and use your simulation program to do some design. I have released Version 0.5 of the project which explains the set-up of the simulation. This is so that you can read the system description and start to think about how to do the simulation. I will release the full version next week.

    If you click on the Project link on the left, you will find Version 0.5. If you click on the link "Project (Reference paper)", you will find the paper referred to in the project document.

    The following information will be in the final version but it may be useful for you to know:

    • You can implement your simulation in Python (Version 2 or 3), C, C++, Java or Matlab. All these languages and numerical packages are available on the CSE system. Your submitted program must be able to run on a CSE computer because we will test your program on the CSE system.
