Virtual output queuing is widely used by fixed-length high-speed switches to overcome head-of-line blocking. This is done by means of matching algorithms. Maximum matching algorithms have good performance, but their implementation complexity is quite high. Maximal matching algorithms need speedup to guarantee good performance. Iterative algorithms (such as PIM and iSLIP) use multiple iterations to converge on a maximal match. The dual round-robin matching (DRRM) scheme has performance similar to iSLIP and lower implementation complexity. The objective of matching algorithms is to reduce the matching overhead for each time slot. In this paper we present the exhaustive service dual round-robin matching (EDRRM) algorithm, which amortizes the cost of a match over multiple time slots. While EDRRM suffers from a throughput below 100% for small switch sizes, it is conjectured to achieve an asymptotic 100% throughput under uniform traffic. Simulations show that it achieves high throughput under nonuniform traffic. Its delay performance is not sensitive to traffic burstiness, switch size and packet length. In an EDRRM switch cells belonging to the same packet are transferred to the output continuously, which leads to good packet delay performance and simplifies the implementation of packet reassembly.
