Inside parallel computers: trends in interconnection networks

Academic Article

Abstract

  • The interconnection networks through which processors communicate in tightly coupled parallel machines remain a vital research topic for computer architectures. These networks can be categorized according to a number of criteria such as topology, routing strategy, and switching technique. They vary widely in their cost, their fault tolerance, their simplicity, their amenability to partitioning, and their aggregate bandwidth for local and nonlocal traffic patterns.
