    As the number of cores in a chip has increased over the past several years, the problem of inter-core communication has become a bottleneck. Traditional bus architectures cannot handle the traffic load for the increasingly large number of communicating units on chip. Using a nanophotonic Network-on-Chip(NoC) is a proposed solution that is motivated by recent research indicating a higher throughput... View full abstract»

  • Minimizing Delay in Shared Pipelines

    Pipelines are widely used to increase throughput in multi-core chips by parallelizing packet processing. Typically, each packet type is serviced by a dedicated pipeline. However, with the increase in the number of packet types and their number of required services, there are not enough cores for pipelines. In this paper, we study pipeline sharing, such that a single pipeline can be used to serve s... View full abstract»

    The rapid increase in processor and memory integration onto a single die continues to place increasingly complex demands on the interconnect network. In addition to providing low latency, high speed and high bandwidth access from all processors to all shared resources, the burdens of hardware cache coherence and resource virtualization are being placed upon the interconnect as well. This paper des... View full abstract»

  • TCP Pacing in Data Center Networks

    This paper studies the effectiveness of TCP pacing in a data center setting. TCP senders inject bursts of packets into the network at the beginning of each round-trip time. These bursts stress the network queues which may cause loss, reduction in throughput and increased latency. Such undesirable effects become more pronounced in data center environments where traffic is bursty in nature and buffe... View full abstract»

  • Clustered Linked List Forest for IPv6 Lookup

    Providing a high operating frequency and abundant parallelism, Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs) are the most promising base to realize SRAM-based pipelined architectures for high-speed Internet Protocol (IP) lookup. Owing to the restrictions of the state-of-the-art FPGAs on the number of I/O pins and on-chip memory, the existing approaches can hardly accommodate the large and sparsely-distri...

  • HybridCuts: A Scheme Combining Decomposition and Cutting for Packet Classification

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (347 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Packet classification is an enabling function for a variety of Internet applications such as access control, quality of service and differentiated services. Decision-tree and decomposition are the most well-known algorithmic approaches. Compared to architectural solutions, both approaches are memory and performance inefficient, falling short of the needs of high-speed networks. EffiCuts, the state... View full abstract»

  • Efficient Implementation of Security Applications in OpenFlow Controller with FleXam

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (296 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Current OpenFlow specifications provide limited access to packet-level information such as packet content, making it very inefficient, if not impossible, to deploy security and monitoring applications as controller applications. In this paper, we propose FleXam, a flexible sampling extension for OpenFlow designed to provide access to packet level information at the controller. Simplicity of FleXam... View full abstract»

  • OFAR-CM: Efficient Dragonfly Networks with Simple Congestion Management

    Publication Year: 2013, Page(s):55 - 62
    Cited by:  Papers (4)

    Dragonfly networks are appealing topologies for large-scale Data center and HPC networks, that provide high throughput with low diameter and moderate cost. However, they are prone to congestion under certain frequent traffic patterns that saturate specific network links. Adaptive non-minimal routing can be used to avoid such congestion. That kind of routing employs longer paths to circumvent local... View full abstract»

    Cited by:  Papers (8)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (298 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    The emergence of co-processors such as Intel Many Integrated Cores (MICs) is changing the landscape of supercomputing. The MIC is a memory constrained environment and its processors also operate at slower clock rates. Furthermore, the communication characteristics between MIC processes are also different compared to communication between host processes. Communication libraries that do not consider...

    Modern data center networks must support a multitude of diverse and demanding workloads at low cost and even the most simple architectural choices can impact mission-critical application performance. This forces network architects to continually evaluate tradeoffs between ideal designs and pragmatic, cost effective solutions. In real commercial environments the number of parameters that the archit... View full abstract»

    The Hadoop Distributed File System (HDFS) is a popular choice for Big Data applications due to its reliability and fault-tolerance. HDFS provides fault-tolerance and availability guarantee by replicating each data block to multiple DataN-odes. The current implementation of HDFS in Apache Hadoop performs replication in a pipelined fashion resulting in higher replication times. Such large replicatio... View full abstract»
