Abstract [en]

The recent Energy Efficient Ethernet (EEE) standard and the eBond protocol provide two orthogonal approaches that allow significant energy savings on routers. In this paper we present the modeling and performance evaluation of these two protocols and a hybrid protocol. We first present eeeBond, pronounced ``triple-e bond'', which combines the eBond capability to switch between multiple redundant interfaces with EEE's active/idle toggling capability implemented in each interface. Second, we present an analytic model of the protocol performance, and derive closed-form expressions for the optimized parameter settings of both eBond and eeeBond. Third, we present a performance evaluation that characterizes the relative performance gains possible with the optimized protocols, as well as a trace-based evaluation that validates the insights from the analytic model. Our results show that there are significant advantages to combine eBond and EEE. The eBond capability provides good savings when interfaces only offer small energy savings when in short-term sleep states, and the EEE capability is important as short-term sleep savings improve.
