The fat-tree topology has become a popular choice for InfiniBand fabrics due to its inherent deadlock freedom, fault-tolerance and full bisection bandwidth. InfiniBand is used by more than 40% of the systems on the latest Top 500 list, and many of these systems are based on a fat-tree topology. However, the current InfiniBand fat-tree routing algorithm… CONTINUE READING
