In this work we evaluate the performance of novel back-pressure mechanisms in a Clos-based 100 Gb/s switch system via OPNET modeler simulations. The effectiveness of the mechanisms under different switch configurations, as well as under different traffic patterns, is presented. Our results indicate that the proposed back-pressure techniques can effectively reduce the requirements for buffer space in the different stages of the Clos switch.
