[Xen-users] RE: [ofa-general] Infiniband performance
I asked almost the exact same question as you about 6 months ago and someone
provided some Gen4 results for me (But I can't seem to find them in email),
they were a fair bit better than Gen3.
With IPOIB, you want connected mode and a large 32Kb+ MTU for max bandwidth,
1Gbyte/sec or more should be possible with Gen 4.
Here are some of my original test results on my Opteron System with Gen3 cards:
#qperf 192.168.10.160 tcp_bw tcp_lat
bw = 866 MB/sec
latency = 30.8 us
# qperf 192.168.10.160 rc_bi_bw
bw = 1.71 GB/sec
The second result is bi directional, Gen4 on PCI-E V2 should get quite a lot

What TCP bandwidth did you get with the gen4 cards?
