Deterministic versus Adaptive Routing in Fat-Trees

C. Gomez, F. Gilabert, M.E. Gomez, P. Lopez, J. Duato

We exploit this idea to propose a deterministic routing algorithm for fat-trees, comparing it with adaptive routing in several workloads.  ...  These machines use commodity PCs linked by a high speed interconnect. Routing is one of the most important design issues of interconnection networks.  ...  Either regular direct networks (tori and meshes) or indirect multistage networks (MINs) are the usual choice.  ...

The Folded Hypercube ATM Switches [chapter]

Jahng S. Park, Nathaniel J. Davis
2001 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
To guarantee faster switching of time-sensitive cells, the routing algorithm of the three switches uses a priority scheme that gives higher precedence to the time-sensitive cells.  ...  Therefore, there is a need for switch designs with low complexity and high performance. This research proposes three new ATM switches based on the folded hypercube network (FHC).  ...  (or multistage interconnection networks).  ...
