Abstract:Error detection and recovery schemes are important for software design. Software-based error recovery schemes are proposed for ServerNet system area network (ServerNet SAN) to improve the network interface software dependability. The detection and recovery focuses on memory faults that corrupt network interface software. The techniques proposed are by no means limited to ServerNet architecture, it is useful to the recovery of the new generation high-performance Virtual Interface Architecture (VIA). Dependability analysis of such complicated architecture requires an efficient technique to assess the schemes. The proposed speculation-based method is adopted to simulate the architecture behavior including recovery in the presence of faults. The technique allows efficient simulation without incurring much additional run-time overhead to obtain reliability results. Experimental results include error coverage, error latency distribution, and effective round-trip time.
