High interprocess communication latency is detrimental to parallel and grid computing. Over the years, the network bandwidth has increased rapidly while the end-to-end latency has not decreased much. This is because the latency is dominated by the protocol software execution time in the kernel instead of the raw transmission time over the link. In this paper, we perform an anatomical analysis of the complete communication path between a sender and a receiver through measurements. We present an… CONTINUE READING
