We propose implementing cache coherence protocolswithin the network, demonstrating how an in-networkimplementation of the MSI directory-based protocol allowsfor in-transit optimizations of read and write delay. Ourresults show 15% and 24% savings on average in memoryaccess latency for SPLASH-2 parallel benchmarks runningon a 4x4 and a 16x16 multiprocessor respectively.
