The article analyzes a proposed network topology for the ATLAS DAQ DataFlow, and identifies the Ethernet features required for a proper operation of the network: MAC address table size, switch performance in terms of throughput and latency, the use of Flow Control, Virtual LANs and Quality of Service. We investigate these features on some Ethernet switches, and conclude on their usefulness for the ATLAS DataFlow network.

Validation of the atlas trigger/daq network architecture using hardware data emulators
Hardware data emulators are used to deploy a large-scale model of the ATLAS data acquisition architecture. The emulators, based on FPGAs and on the Alteon gigabit Ethernet NIC, are described, andExpand
Software Switching for High Throughput Data Acquisition Networks
TLDR
This thesis designs and optimises a software-based switch with a dedicated, throughput-oriented buffering mechanism for data acquisition and designs and evaluates the scalability of the system when building a larger topology of interconnected software switches. Expand
