An Optimal Single-Path Routing Algorithm in the Datacenter Network DPillar

Alejandro Erickson, Abbas E. Kiasari, Javier Navaridas, Iain A. Stewart
2017 IEEE Transactions on Parallel and Distributed Systems  
We use this symmetry property to establish a single-path routing algorithm for DPillar that computes a shortest path and has time complexity O(k), where k parameterizes the dimension of DPillar (we refer  ...  In particular, we empirically show that our routing algorithm improves the average length of paths found, the aggregate bottleneck throughput, and the communication latency.  ...  ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS All of the authors are supported by the EPSRC grants EP/K015680/1 and EP/K015699/1 'Interconnection Networks: Practice unites with Theory (INPUT)'.
