Nowadays, distributed computer systems have become very popular approach of computing as it delivers high end performance at a low cost. In a distributed computing environment, autonomous computers are connected by means of a communication network, arranged in a geometrical shape called network topology. In the present paper a detailed study of network topologies is done for the distributed computer systems. A most popular Unified Modeling Language (UML) is used for modeling the different network topologies. A comparative study is done for 2D Mesh, Torus, and Hypercube network topologies and their performance is also evaluated after designing the UML Class, Sequence, and Activity diagrams for the same.
