It has been observed that many networks arising in practice have skewed node degree distributions. Scale-free networks are one well-known class of such networks. Achieving efficient parallel simulation of scale-free networks is challenging because large-degree nodes can create bottlenecks that limit performance. To help address this problem, we describe an approach called link partitioning where each network link is mapped to a logical process in contrast to the conventional approach of mapping each node to a logical process.
