Measures of Message Latency for Wormhole Routed Networks

  title={Measures of Message Latency for Wormhole Routed Networks},
  author={K. C. Patel and D. N. Jayasimha and J. R. Patel},
A traditional measure of the communication performance in a massively parallel processor (MPP) is the average message latency. In this paper we argue that the variance, or equivalently, the standard deviation of message latencies should be considered as an additional important measure in a multi-user MPP environment. Using a simulation based approach, we investigate various schemes to reduce the standard deviation without adversely affecting the average latency. Simulations on a 16 16 wormhole… CONTINUE READING
