High-Performance computing (HPC) is rarely accomplished via virtual machines (VMs). In this paper, we present a remake of ivshmem which can change this. Ivshmem was a shared memory (SHM) between virtual machines on the same server, with SHM-access synchronization included, until about 5 years ago when newer versions of Linux and its virtualization library libvirt evolved. We restored that SHM-access synchronization feature because it is indispensable for HPC and made ivshmem runnable with… CONTINUE READING
