Measured capacity of an Ethernet: myths and reality

D. R. Boggs, J. C. Mogul, C. A. Kent
1988 Computer communication review  
Based on measurements of an actual implementation, we show that for a wide class of applications, Ethernet is capable of carrying its nominal bandwidth of useful traffic, and allocates the bandwidth fairly  ...  Considerable confusion exists as to the actual capacity of an Ethernet, especially since some theoretical studies have examined operating regimes that are not characteristic of actual networks.  ...  During the process of performing our measurements, we took over 90% of the computing capacity, and on several occasions caused network "meltdowns" which made the rest of the computers useless.  ...

Parallel Logic Simulation: Myth or Reality?

Kai-hui Chang, Chris Browy
2012 Computer  
In reality, communication overhead typically doesn't improve linearly with the improvement in processor speed.  ...  There are several common myths about parallel simulation. We analyze two in particular.  ...  Acknowledgment We thank Igor Markov, University of Michigan, for his valuable comments on this article.  ...

A Distributed Polling Service-Based Medium Access Control Protocol: Prototyping and Experimental Validation [chapter]

Yingsong Huang, Philip A., Shiwen Mao, Yihan Li
2012 Wireless Ad-Hoc Networks  
Any opinions, findings, and conclusions or recommendations expressed in this material are those of the author(s) and do not necessarily reflect the views of the foundation.  ...  The remainder of this chapter is organized as follows. We first review PSMAC in Section 2. We then provide the system overview in Section 3 and discuss implementation details in Section 4.  ...  As discussed, we also connect all the computers to an Ethernet hub and synchronize their clocks with IEEE 1588 (for accurate measurement of one-way frame delays).  ...

Demystifying energy consumption in Grids and Clouds

Anne-Cecile Orgerie, Laurent Lefevre, Jean-Patrick Gelas
2010 International Conference on Green Computing  
Based on some experimental results and measurements, we revisit and focus on some "truths" commonly assumed concerning the energy usage of servers, the links between resource load and consumed energy,  ...  the impact of ON/OFF models, and some wrong assumptions linking energy and virtualization.  ...  This paper lists and clarifies some of these "myths" by confronting them with realistic measurements and analyses we made.  ...
