Sockets direct protocol (SDP) is an industry standard pseudo sockets-like implementation to allow existing sockets applications to directly and transparently take advantage of the advanced features of current generation networks such as InfiniBand. The SDP standard supports two kinds of sockets semantics, viz., synchronous sockets (e.g., used by Linux, BSD,(More)
Due to the growing need to tolerate network faults and congestion in high-end computing systems, supporting multiple network communication paths is becoming increasingly important. However, multi-path communication comes with the disadvantage of out-of-order arrival of packets (because packets may traverse different paths). While modern networking stacks(More)
The Sockets Direct Protocol (SDP) is an industry standard to allow existing TCP/IP applications to be executed on high-speed networks such as InfiniBand (IB). Like many other high-speed networks, IB requires the receiver process to inform the network interface card (NIC), before the data arrives, about buffers in which incoming data has to be placed. To(More)
As high-end computing systems continue to grow, the needfor advanced networking capabilities, such as hot-spot avoidance andfault tolerance, is becoming important. While the traditional approachof utilizing intelligent network hardware has worked well to achieve highperformance, adding more and more features makes the hardware complexand expensive.(More)
Due to the low speeds of earlier generation networks such as Fast Ethernet, network communication was considered to be one of the primary bottlenecks in cluster computing. Accordingly, researchers used a number of techniques to hide the communication overheads in networks. In order to alleviate this problem, several researchers and industries proposed and(More)
