Self-Tuned Distributed Multiprocessor System

Please use the reference paper

            Self-Tuned Distributed Multiprocessor System

to answer the four questions below. Email me your answers to these questions prior to our class meeting on Monday, April 2nd.

  1. How is data transfer measured in Self-Timed or asynchronous systems? Explain how the round-trip signaling mechanism works.

  2. Explain how the decision to slow down or speed up the clock in Self-Tuned Systems is taken.

  3. What is a Node component?

  4. List and briefly describe any 3 interconnection network topologies.
