Tierney, "Experiences with 100G Network Applications", In Proceedings of the Fifth international Workshop on Data-intensive Distributed Computing, in conjunction with ACM High Performance Distributing Computing (HPDC) Conference, 2012, Delft, Netherlands, June 2012, LBNL 5603E, doi: 10.1145/2286996.2287004

100Gbps networking has finally arrived, and many research and educational in- stitutions have begun to deploy 100Gbps routers and services. ESnet and Internet2 worked together to make 100Gbps networks available to researchers at the Super- computing 2011 conference in Seattle Washington. In this paper, we describe two of the first applications to take advantage of this network. We demonstrate a visu- alization application that enables remotely located scientists to gain insights from large datasets. We also demonstrate climate data movement and analysis over the 100Gbps network. We describe a number of application design issues and host tuning strategies necessary for enabling applications to scale to 100Gbps rates.
