Arabic Abstract


English Abstract

Shared memory multiprocessors are becoming increasingly valuable in the field of parallel processing. The performance of the interconnection network used for communication has a direct bearing on the efficiency of the system. Sharing of data among hundreds of processors may create bottlenecks that arise due to concurrent accesses to a shared memory are called hotspots. Hotspots result in a congestion of traffic on particular paths in the network which leads to a substantial degradation in the performance of the network. This thesis deals with the performance evaluation of the unbuffered and buffered multistage interconnection networks under the presence of a single hotspot. A new analytical model is proposed for analyzing the network under the effect of this non-uniformity. Extensive simulations are performed to demonstrate the accuracy of the proposed models. The performance evaluation of both unbuffered and buffered omega networks is done.
