Summary:
Multiprocessor systems have demonstrated great potential for meeting the ever increasing demand for higher performance. In this thesis, we develop simulation models with fewer and more realistic assumptions to evaluate the performance of the circuit-switched cluster-based multiprocessor system. We then introduce a packet-switched variation of the cluster-based architecture and develop simulation models to evaluate its performance. The analysis of the cluster-based systems is performed for both uniform and non-uniform memory reference models. We conducted similar analysis for the crossbar and multiple-bus systems. Finally, the results of the cluster-based systems are compared to those obtained for the crossbar and the multiple-bus systems.
