With the parallel systems being scaled-up, the static energy consumed by their interconnection networks has been increasing substantially. The key to reducing static energy in supercomputers is switching off their unused components. Routers are the major components of a supercomputer. Whether routers can be effectively switched off or not has become the key to static energy management for supercomputers. For many typical applications, the routers in a supercomputer exhibit low utilization. However, it is very difficult to switch the routers off when they are idle. By analyzing the router occupancy in time and space, we present a routing-policy guided topology partitioning methodology to solve this problem. We propose topology partitioning methods for three kinds of commonly used topologies (mesh, torus and fat-tree) equipped with the three most popular routing policies (deterministic routing, directionally adaptive routing and fully adaptive routing). Based on the above methods, we propose the key techniques required in this topology partitioning based static energy management in supercomputer interconnection networks to switch off unused routers in both time and space dimensions. Three topology-aware resource allocation algorithms have been developed to

handle effectively different job-mixes running on a supercomputer. We validate the effectiveness of our methodology by using Tianhe-2 and a simulator for the aforementioned topologies and routing policies.
