The annual Hot Interconnects conference is devoted to the architecture and implementation of networking technologies. The proceedings of the ninth conference, held in Stanford, CA, in August 2001, includes 25 papers in the realms of packet scheduling and classification; high-speed interconnects; network attached storage and memory; network protocol design and evaluation; switch design and architecture; and interconnect and circuit technologies. It also provides summaries of four tutorials on MPLS for traffic engineering; InfiniBand architecture; Bluetooth 802.11; and control and management of modern optical networks. Indexed by author but not by subject. c. Book News Inc.The SCI adapters also contain a DMA engine that can copy to and from remote memory. ... into packets with a maximum payload of 64 bytes resulting in a very fine-grained pipelining of remote memory operations. ... In this way it is possible to aquot;cheataquot; the I/O devices to deliver data directly to the remote nodes and fetch data directly from the remote nodes. ... 3.2.2 Disk Nodes with Intermediate Buffers A less optimized approach is to use intermediate data buffers on the disk nodes.
