The Scalable Coherent Interface (SCI) is an emerging IEEE standard that provides computer-bus-like services to a set of nodes via fast, unidirectional links. This paper presents the first detailed performance study of the SCI ring, using both analytical models and simulation. Performance is analyzed for uniform and nonuniform traffic, and the effect of the ring's flow control protocol is studied. The queueing model is based on an M/G/1 queue, augmented to include the effect of packet trains on… CONTINUE READING
