In the literature, performance studies on packet switches and link-level flow control procedures were treated separately. In this paper, we use a queueing network approach to analyze packet switch performance in terms of the combined effects of switch architectures and link-level flow-control procedures. Results of the study provide us with valuable insights about switch designs and unfold the relationship between switch performance and packet acknowledgment schemes.
