The Angara high-speed interconnect with multidimensional torus topology is under development in Scientific Research Center for Electronic Computer Technology. During the utilization of the Angara interconnect in cluster systems, there exist busy and failed nodes. Thus, there is a problem of finding an optimal cluster node subset such that the network traffic belongs to this node subset and the node subset size is not less than a given size. The paper presents an approximate algorithm for solving this problem.
