Modeling Computational Limitations in H-Phy and Overlay-NoC Architectures

Document Type



High performance computing demands constant growth in computational power and services that can be offered by modern supercomputers. It requires technological and designing advances in the multiprocessor internal structures as well as novel computing models considering the very high computing demands. One of the increasingly important requirements of computing platforms is a functionality that allows efficient managing computational resources, i.e., monitor them, restrict an access to some part of the resources, account for computational service, or ensure reliability and quality of service when some resources are broken or disabled. In this paper, we present a new model describing computational limitations for processing tasks on multiprocessor systems. The model is implemented in Hardware-Physical (H-Phy) and Overlay-Network-on-Chip (Overlay-NoC) architectures. Both architectures and the model are described and analyzed. Experimentation system is also presented, together with simulation assumptions, results of research and their study. The paper provides complete models of H-Phy and Overlay-NoC structures with an ability to restrict processing resources.
