7.4. Design Space Exploration for Customizing Communication Architectures

The design of a communication architecture calls for careful attention to several issues in order to meet all the desired design goals. These include (1) selection of an appropriate network topology; (2) selection of appropriate communication protocols, along with careful configuration of protocol parameters; and (3) optimization of the mapping of the system communications to physical paths in the topology. As communication architectures grow in complexity, each of these steps potentially presents system designers with a large number of alternatives. In addition (as we shall see later in this section) they may interact, leading to tradeoffs that are difficult to identify ...
