Abstract

<p><a href="http://www.osa-jon.org/features/OIN_2004.html">Feature Issue on Optical Interconnection Networks (OIN)</a></p> We demonstrate the feasibility of the data vortex interconnection network architecture for use in supercomputing by emulating realistic network traffic on an eight-node subnetwork. The evaluation workload uses memory accesses from the Barnes-Hut application in the SLPASH-2 parallel computing benchmark suite, which was extracted by using the M5 multiprocessor system simulator. We confirm that traffic is routed correctly and efficiently.
