Multicore computer systems are adopting more cores to meet the increasing performance requirement. Network topology to make communication in such a multicore/manycore system (like Intel 80-Core Research Chip and IBM Roadrunner) is extremely important to achieve high performance by supplying low energy. Designing and analyzing such a gigantic system is very complicated and it costs up to millions of dollars. Performance modelling technique is attracting researches from many organizations and different disciplines to conduct research on multicore/manycore-networked systems in an inexpensive way.
