Howto configure the Linux kernel / drivers / infiniband


InfiniBand supportEdit

  • Option: INFINIBAND
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • depends on PCI || BROKEN
    • (on/off/module) InfiniBand support
      Core support for InfiniBand (IB). Make sure to also select any protocols you wish to use as well as drivers for your InfiniBand hardware.


  • Option: INFINIBAND_USER_MAD
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off/module) InfiniBand userspace MAD support
    • depends on INFINIBAND
      Userspace InfiniBand Management Datagram (MAD) support. This is the kernel side of the userspace MAD support, which allows userspace processes to send and receive MADs. You will also need libibumad from <http://www.openib.org>.


  • Option: INFINIBAND_USER_ACCESS
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off/module) InfiniBand userspace access (verbs and CM)
    • depends on INFINIBAND
      Userspace InfiniBand access support. This enables the kernel side of userspace verbs and the userspace communication manager (CM). This allows userspace processes to set up connections and directly access InfiniBand hardware for fast-path operations. You will also need libibverbs, libibcm and a hardware driver library from <http://www.openib.org>.
