Abstract: Programmable network functions are described to enhance the computational efficiency of the high-performance computing (HPC) systems by making the network react and adapt to the traffic conditions in relation to the computational efficiency. In this report a micro HPC system with programmable network fabrics is described and its performance compared under various traffic conditions. Matrix multiplication is used to analyze the computational efficiency of the micro HPC system.
