|7480246||Characterizing transmission of data segments within a switch fabric using multiple counters for each destination node|
In one embodiment, data segments routed through a switch fabric are identified as being either a first or a second type. First and second counters are maintained for a destination node to characterize the transmission of data segments of the corresponding type withi...
|7319695||Deficit-based striping algorithm|
Roughly described, a striping algorithm selects a route on which to transmit each next data segment, pseudorandomly from among a subset of eligible routes, the subset being chosen in dependence upon relative channel loading so far. Preferably each ingress node to a ...
