This took me all day, so you had better like it

Network topologiesSeriously, though, are you confused by the fact I have done the computing nodes in two different colours? Should they all be the one colour (the router nodes in the tree example should be a different colour anyway)?

  1. No confusion here about the colors, although I would vote for a different shape (square, triangle, octagon, …) For the routers to emphasize that they are a different species. I am confused by the “tree”. In graph theory, I’m fairly certain trees are required to be acyclic.

    1. Thanks. Technically it’s a “fat tree” and I should probably label it as such. You are right that it’s not acyclic, but the literature refers to it as a tree, so if I’m wrong I’m in good company! (This is the SPIN design, so it has actually been built).
      Good point about the shapes.

      1. Hadn’t heard the term “fat tree” before, possibly because here it would be deemed politically incorrect. (We would refer to a “plus size tree”.)
