Executive Summary

Interconnection networks play a crucial role in the performance of massively parallel computer systems. Hierarchical interconnection networks provide high performance at low cost by exploring the locality that exists in the communication patterns of massively parallel computer systems. The Tori-connected mESH (TESH) Network is a 2D-torus network of multiple basic modules, in which the basic modules are 2D-mesh networks that are hierarchically interconnected for higher level networks. In this paper, the authors evaluate the dynamic communication performance of the TESH network using dimension order routing algorithm under various non-uniform traffic patterns.
