Network Performance Comparative Analysis of Torus and Modified Mesh Interconnections with Source Routing for Packet Loss

Ramesh B., Gururaj H. L., and Chandrika J.
Abstract—The network topologies performance can be measured by number of parameters such as throughput, latency and jitter. The performance degradation of a network will happen by a very crucial parameter called data loss. Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) is a widely deployed reliable transport protocol. Data Source routing, is a routing approach in which the path to the destination is determined by the source itself. Torus interconnect is a combination of regular ring and mesh topologies and it is widely used in parallel supercomputers. Torus interconnect reduces the number of hops to reach the destination and thereby it saves the energy. The paper evaluating the performance of Torus interconnection and modified mesh interconnect on the basis of packet loss with source routing using different traffic generation mechanisms for parallel transmissions and comparing the results. Results are drawn for various scenarios and analyzed which are useful for designing the interconnection networks.

Index Terms—Interconnection networks, modified mesh topology, packet loss, source routing, torus topology.
