NGL02-2: Ethernet Adaptive Link Rate (ALR): Analysis of a Buffer Threshold Policy

  title={NGL02-2: Ethernet Adaptive Link Rate (ALR): Analysis of a Buffer Threshold Policy},
  author={Chamara Gunaratne and Kenneth J. Christensen and Stephen Suen},
  journal={IEEE Globecom 2006},
Rapidly increasing energy use by computing and communications equipment is a significant problem that needs to be addressed. Ethernet network interface controllers (NICs) consume hundreds of millions of US$ in electricity per year. Most Ethernet links are underutilized and link power consumption can be reduced by operating at lower data rates. An output buffer threshold policy to change link data rate in response to utilization is investigated. Analytical and simulation models are developed to… CONTINUE READING
