Multiple copper-based commodity gigabit Ethernet (GigE) interconnects (adapters) on a single host can lead to Linux clusters with mesh/torus connections without using expensive switches and high speed network interconnects (NICs). However traditional message passing systems based on TCP for GigE cannot perform well for this type of clusters because of the overhead of TCP for multiple GigE links. In this paper, we present two os-bypass message passing systems that are based on a modified M-VIA… CONTINUE READING
