—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.
