Abstract

Gracefully degrading multiprocessor systems are studied, using a multistage interconnection network-based system as an example. A measure of graceful degradation, called system integrity level, which is proportional to the number of different data flow paths in a system in presence of faults, is introduced; its properties are analyzed. It is shown that under this approach, graceful degradation of multiprocessor system can be evaluated as a combination of individual degradations in each of the processor, memory, and network subsystems.
