  • Multicast Receive Queue block

Description

The Multicast Receive Queue block is identical to an Entity Queue block with the Entity arrival source parameter set to Multicast. For information about parameter descriptions, see the documentation for the Entity Queue block.

You specify a Multicast tag for receiving entities. Then the block receives entities with a matching Multicast tag broadcast by the Entity Multicast block. See Overview of Queues and Servers in Discrete-Event Simulation, for more information about using multicast mode to broadcast entities.
