A simulation model based on CSIM, a process oriented simulated language, to analyze the performance of the Token Bus protocol is developed. Performance measures such as throughput, average delay and maximum delay per packet are presented. System performance is analyzed for different loads, number of stations, network lengths, different physical and logical distribution of the stations with packet length as a parameter. Previous studies were based on the delay-throughput analysis with no discussion on the effect of variation of the logical and physical distribution of the stations on the performance of the model which is done in the present thesis. The load is offered to the network in the form of a stream of data packets with uniformly distributed inter-arrival times. A comparison of the Token Bus model with that of a CSNIA/CD model shows that the physical distribution of the stations has a minimum effect on the performance of the model in the case of the Token Bus model but has a considerable effect on that of the CSMA/CD model.
