Center Concentrated X-Torus Topology

Dinesh Kumar, Vivek Kumar Sehgal, Nitin Nitin


The topologies are the very important part of the interconnection network. The topologies once decided cannot be further modified in some cases, so we have to design best topology before its use. The regular topologies have been used in various massively parallel computers. In this paper, we have proposed a new variant of X-torus topology which the objective gets the better on the various qualities of service parameter like latency and throughput. The performance the proposed topology has been tested on the four traffic patterns and have been found that the topology is either better or same in the terms of performance. However, it has been found that we were able to get improvement of 85.24% in the terms of average latency than the other topologies similarly the throughput of the topology has improved by 17.86%. The Hop count is also another factor to study as if we can reduce the hop count in a particular topology we will be able to improve the performance and average hop count of our topology has been improved by 9.58%.
