Abstract

See full text

A compute node with multiple transfer processes that share an Infiniband connection to send and receive messages across a network. Transfer processes are first associated with an Infiniband queue pair (QP) connection. Then send message commands associated with a transfer process are issued. This causes an Infiniband message to be generated and sent, via the QP connection, to a remote compute node corresponding to the QP. Send message commands associated with another process are also issued. This causes another Infiniband message to be generated and sent, via the same QP connection, to the same remote compute node. As mentioned, multiple processes may receive network messages received via a shared QP connection. A transfer process on a receiving compute node receives a network message through a QP connection using a receive queue. A second transfer process receives another message through the same QP connection using another receive queue.
