Multiprocessor interconnection network effectiveness differs considerably across applications and operating environments, but even if these variables were fixed, cost and performance metrics must be chosen. Scientifically determining the best network is as difficult as saying with certainty that one animal is better than another. We explore the problems of determining which metrics or weighted set of metrics designers should use to compare networks and how they should apply these metrics to yield meaningful information. We also look at problems in conducting fair and scientific evaluations
