Example problems

Example Problems

  • 1. Draw a 4X4 crossbar switch.

  • 2. Draw a 4X4 Omega network

  • 3. Suppose there are 16 processors connected in a 4 dimensional hypercube.

    • a. How many direct connections to other processors does each processor have?

    • b. What is the minimum number of links that will have to be traversed to send data from processor 3 to processor 12?


Example problems1

Example Problems

  • 4. Suppose you have a machine with 4 cores that uses snooping cache coherence. Core 0 reads from address 10,000, core 3 reads from address 10,000. Core 3 writes to address 10,000. How does Core 0 know its copy of the contents of address 10,000 is out of date.

  • 5. On a 4X4 Omega network can the following source destination requests be satisfied at the same time. (0,0), (3,1), (1,2), (2,3)

  • 6. How many switches are in an 8X8 crossbar?

  • 7. How many switches are on an 8X8 Omega network?
