Where to Provide Support for Efficient Multicasting in Irregular Networks: Network Interface or Switch?


Recent research has proposed methods for enhancing the performance of multicast in networks with irregular topologies. These methods fall into two broad categories: (a) network interface (NI) based schemes that make use of enhanced functionality of the software/firmware running at the NI processor, and (b) switch-based methods that use enhancements to the… (More)
