Abstract

Feature Issue on Optical Interconnection Networks (OIN)

We demonstrate the feasibility of the data vortex interconnection network architecture for use in supercomputing by emulating realistic network traffic on an eight-node subnetwork. The evaluation workload uses memory accesses from the Barnes-Hut application in the SLPASH-2 parallel computing benchmark suite, which was extracted by using the M5 multiprocessor system simulator. We confirm that traffic is routed correctly and efficiently.
