Abstract

NDP is a novel data centre transport architecture that claims to achieve near-optimal completion times for short transfers and high flow throughput in a wide range of scenarios. This work presents a performance evaluation of NDP, both on the simulation and the hardware level. We show that NDP’s implementation achieves lower switch throughput than simple TCP, and that the simulated performance is highly dependent on the selected parameters.
