Rent's rule and parallel programs: characterizing network traffic behavior

  title={Rent's rule and parallel programs: characterizing network traffic behavior},
  author={Wim Heirman and Joni Dambre and Dirk Stroobandt and Jan M. Van Campenhout},
In VLSI systems, Rent's rule characterizes the locality of interconnect between different subsystems, and allows an efficient layout of the circuit on a chip. With rising complexities of both hardware and software, Systems-on-Chip are converging to multiprocessor architectures connected by a Network-on-Chip. Here, packets are routed instead of wires, and threads of a parallel program are distributed among processors. Still, Rent's rule remains applicable, as it can now be used to describe the… CONTINUE READING
