Performance of the double-LIE architecture

The Double-LIB is an ATM-based switch architecture we have proposed for distributed memory multiprocessor systems. It is essentially a development of the Limited Intermediate Buffer (LIB) idea which was originally proposed to overcome the drawbacks of input and output buffered ATM switches. In this paper, we summarize the characteristics of the Double-LIB and then proceed to report some simulation-based performance results. It is our conclusion that the Double-LIB switch is promising as a solution to the distributed memory multiprocessor communication problem.
