Autonet is a self-configuring local area network composed of switches interconnected by 100 Mbit/second, full-duplex, point-to-point links. The switches contain 12 ports that are internally connected by a full crossbar. Switches use cut-through to achieve a packet forwarding latency as low as 2 microseconds per switch. Any switch port can be cabled to any(More)
20 provide the lowest latency and do not require host adapter buuer allocation. However, they require various degrees of complexity in crossbar switch implementation, in order to process source multicast addresses and prevent new types of deadlocks caused by the simultaneous use of multiple paths. None of the proposed schemes can be directly implemented in(More)
The Mesa programming language supports program modularity in ways that permit subsystems to be developed separately but to be bound together with complete type safety. Separate and explicit interface definitions provide an effective means of communication, both between programs and between programmers. A configuration language describes the organization of(More)
