As network computing become commonplace, the interconnection networks and the communication system software become critical in achieving high performance. Thus, it is essential to systematically assess the features and performance of the new networks. Recently, Myricom has introduced a two-port "E-card" Myrinet/PCl-X interface. In this paper, we present the basic performance of its GM2.I messaging layer, as well as a set of microbenchmarks designed to assess the quality of MPI implementation on… CONTINUE READING
