At present, companies and standards organizations are enhancing Ethernet as the unified switch fabric for all of the TCP/IP traffic, the storage traffic and the high performance computing traffic in data centers. Backward congestion notification (BCN) is the basic mechanism for the end-to-end congestion management enhancement of Ethernet. To fulfill the(More)
Recently, the energy consumption of Ethernet has become one of the hottest topics focused by both academic committee and industry, especially with the increase of the link speed from 1Gbps to 10Gbps nowadays or even 40/100/200Gbps in the near future. To save the energy consumed by the Ethernet, the Energy Efficient Ethernet (EEE) is developed and(More)
Currently, Ethernet is being enhanced to become the unified switch fabric in data centers. With the unified switch fabric, the cost on redundant devices is reduced, while the design and management of data center networks are simplified. Congestion management is one of the indispensable enhancements on Ethernet, and Quantized Congestion Notification (QCN)(More)
In data center networks, micro-burst is a common traffic pattern and the packet dropping caused by it usually leads to serious performance degradation. Meanwhile, most of the current commodity switches employ on-chip shared memory, and the buffer management policies of them ensure fair sharing of memory among all ports. Among various polices, Dynamic(More)
Recently, Ethernet is enhanced as the unified switch fabric of data centers, called data center Ethernet. One of the indispensable enhancements is end-to-end congestion management, and currently quantized congestion notification (QCN) has been ratified as the corresponding standard. However, our experiments show that QCN suffers from large oscillations of(More)
Datacenters traffic is composed by numerous latency-sensitive “mice” flows, which is consisted of only several packets, and a few throughput-sensitive “elephant” flows, which occupy more than 80% of overall load. Generally, the short-lived “mice” flows induce transient congestion and the long-lived “elephant” flows cause persistent congestion. The network(More)
Currently, Quantized Congestion Notification (QCN) has been accepted as the standard layer 2 congestion control protocol in Data Center Ethernet. Although the good performance of QCN has been validated in many experiments, we find that QCN has two drawbacks. First, the incomplete binary search in QCN fails to find the proper sending rate, leading to(More)
Electromagnetic pollution is rising all over the world. Compared with electromagnetic waves reflection, electromagnetic absorption (EA) is a better choice to balance electromagnetic applications and human health. The highly conductive networks in composites, as well as in species, and the intensity of defect polarization are the most important factors to(More)
Memcached is a widely used in-memory caching solution in large-scale searching scenarios. The most pivotal performance metric in Memcached is latency, which is affected by various factors including the workload pattern, the service rate, the unbalanced load distribution and the cache miss ratio. To quantitate the impact of each factor on latency, we(More)
Currently, Ethernet is broadly used in LAN, datacenter and enterprise networks, storage networks, high performance computing networks and so on. Along with the popularity of Ethernet comes the requirement of enhancing Ethernet with congestion control. On the other hand, Ethernet speed extends to 40Gbps and 100Gbps recently, and even 400Gbps in the near(More)
