Title (EN) IMPLEMENTING A SWITCH FABRIC RESPONSIVE TO AN UNAVAILABLE PATH
(FR) MISE EN ŒUVRE D'UN COMMUTATEUR RÉPONDANT À UN CHEMIN INDISPONIBLE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)In a method for implementing a switch fabric, in a first fabric chip, a packet comprising an identification of a destination node chip is received from a source fabric chip, and a determination that a first path in the switch fabric along which the packet is to be communicated toward the destination node chip is unavailable is made. In addition, a determination as to whether another path along which the packet is to be communicated toward the destination node chip that does not include the source fabric chip is available is made. In response to a determination that the another path is available, the packet is communicated along the another path. In addition, in response to a determination that the another path is unavailable, the packet is communicated back to the source fabric chip.
(FR)L'invention concerne un procédé de mise en œuvre de commutateur : dans une première puce, un paquet comprenant l'identification d'un nœud de destination est reçu en provenance d'une puce source, et la détermination de l'indisponibilité d'un premier chemin pour l'acheminement du paquet vers le nœud de destination a lieu. Par ailleurs, si un autre chemin est disponible pour l'acheminement du paquet vers le nœud de destination n'incluant pas la puce source, cela est déterminé. Si un autre chemin est disponible, le paquet est acheminé le long de celui-ci. S'il n'y a pas d'autre chemin disponible, le paquet est renvoyé à la puce source.
