Deadlock-free routing algorithms have been developed recently without fully understanding the frequency and characteristics of deadlocks. Using a simulator capable of true deadlock detection, we measure a network's susceptibility to deadlock due to various design parameters. The effects of bidirectionality, routing adaptivity, virtual channels, buffer size(More)
This work characterizes how various network parameters influence message blocking and deadlocks in irregular networks. Information on blocking behavior is provided that is useful in making design trade-offs between restricting routing freedom and allowing the possibility for deadlocks to form in irregular networks. This paper also identifies ways in which a(More)
