Storage and Nonstorage Blocks

For the significance of the distinction between storage and nonstorage blocks, see Interleaving of Block Operations.

Storage Blocks

These blocks are capable of holding an entity for a nonzero duration:

  • Blocks in Queues library

  • Blocks in Servers library

  • Blocks in Entity Generators library

  • Output Switch block with the Store entity before switching option selected

Nonstorage Blocks

These blocks permit an entity arrival but must output or destroy the entity at the same value of the simulation clock:

  • Blocks in Attributes library

  • Blocks in Routing library, except the Output Switch block with the Store entity before switching option selected

  • Blocks in Gates library

  • Blocks in the Entity Management library

  • Blocks in Timing library

  • Blocks in Probes library

  • Blocks in SimEvents User-Defined Functions library

  • Attribute Scope, X-Y Attribute Scope, and Instantaneous Entity Counting Scope blocks

  • Entity Sink block

  • Conn block

  • Entity Departure Function-Call Generator block

  • Entity-Based Function-Call Event Generator block
