Paper Abstract

We have evaluated the performance of Ethernet, Fiber Distributed Data Interface (FDDI) and Canstar Super 100 networks in a multimodal Picture Archiving and Communication System (PACS) environmenl image data transfer rates were measured for SUN workstations and PC/ATs running TCP/IP communication protocols. The communication between two computers was on a server-client basis and all transfer rates were measured between computer memories in order to eliminate the bottleneck imposed by storage devices. Four test models were used to evaluate the performance of the three individual networks: bidirectional, centralized parallel and relay models. This paper describes the methods of network throughput evaluation using these four models and presents the resulting performance data for the three networks tested.
