Supporting iWARP Compatibility and Features for Regular Network Adapters

P. Balaji, H. -W. Jin, K. Vaidyanathan, D. K. Panda
2005 Proceedings IEEE International Conference on Cluster Computing  
In this paper, we design and implement a software stack to handle these issues.  ...  First, not all network adapters support iWARP; thus, software compatibility for regular network adapters (which have no offloaded protocol stack) with iWARP capable network adapters needs to be achieved  ...  Being implemented in user-space and above the sockets layer, this implementation is very portable across various hardware and software platforms 2 .  ...

Implementation and Evaluation of iSCSI over RDMA

Ethan Burns, Robert Russell
2008 2008 Fifth IEEE International Workshop on Storage Network Architecture and Parallel I/Os

Design and testbed evaluation of RDMA-based middleware for high-performance data transfer applications

Yufei Ren, Tan Li, Dantong Yu, Shudong Jin, Thomas Robertazzi
2013 Journal of Systems and Software  
We provide a reference implementation of the popular file-transfer protocol over this RDMA-based middleware layer, called RFTP.  ...  For networks without RDMA hardware acceleration, we integrate Linux kernel optimization techniques to reduce data copy and processing in the middleware.  ...  The Direct Data Placement (DDP) layer of the iWARP stack implements the zero-copy and kernel-bypass, and transfers data in user-space buffer directly to remote application memory.  ...

Analyzing the impact of supporting out-of-order communication on in-order performance with iWARP

P. Balaji, W. Feng, S. Bhagvat, D. K. Panda, R. Thakur, W. Gropp
2007 Proceedings of the 2007 ACM/IEEE conference on Supercomputing - SC '07  
While modern networking stacks such as the Internet Wide-Area RDMA Protocol (iWARP) over 10-Gigabit Ethernet (10GE) support multi-path communication, their current implementations do not handle out-of-order  ...  Specifically, in iWARP, supporting out-of-order packets requires every packet to carry additional information causing significant overhead on packets that arrive in-order.  ...  There exist two designs for host-based iWARP, one in user-space and one in kernel-space. The user-space design builds the iWARP stack on top of TCP/IP sockets.  ...

Memory Management Strategies for Data Serving with RDMA

Dennis Dalessandro, Pete Wyckoff
2007 15th Annual IEEE Symposium on High-Performance Interconnects (HOTI 2007)  
Ordinary sockets-based networks can achieve higher performance by using the "sendfile" mechanism to avoid copying file data into user-space buffers.  ...  In order to access file data and send it over the network, an application must copy it to user-space buffers, and the operating system must register those buffers with the network adapter.  ...  For software, we have coded a test driver that uses either our in-kernel RDMA sendfile implementation, or our pipelined user-space RDMA sendfile implementation.  ...

Mike Tsai, Brad Penoff, Alan Wagner
2008 Proceedings, International Parallel and Distributed Processing Symposium (IPDPS)  
We are not aware of any other software implementations of iWARP over SCTP, nor MPI middleware that uses both iWARP verbs and the SCTP API.  ...  MPI middleware implementations typically use one or the other, however, the appearance of the Internet Wide Area RDMA Protocol (iWARP), RDMA over IP, and protocol off-load devices introduces the opportunity  ...  We based our software iWARP implementation on the user-level version of the OSC-iWARP stack.  ...
