Abstract

See full text

A server interconnect system includes a first server node operable to send and receive messages and a second server nodes operable to send and receive messages. The system further comprises a first interface unit in communication with the first server node and a second interface unit in communication with the second server node. The first interface unit has a first set of message send registers and a first set of message receive registers. Similarly, the second interface unit has a second set of message send registers and a second set of message receive registers. The server interconnect system also includes a communication switch that receives and routes a message from the first or second server nodes when either of the first or second registers indicates that a valid message is ready to be sent. A method implemented by the server interconnect system is also provided.
