Performance Measurement of Remote ATM Clusters



C Martin, Alan Mink, Wayne J. Salamon, Michael D. Indovina, M M. Courson


We investigate the configuration and performance of remote commodity computing clusters. This is the dynamic pooling of separate clusters into a single large remote cluster via existing LANs or even the Internet. We discuss the configuration and setup of these remote clusters, as well as the networks since these clusters are on separate Ethernet subnets and separate ATM switches. We show that pure switching networks add little additional overhead to remote cluster computing applications, whereas routers can a have significant impact.
