Howto configure the Linux kernel / drivers / infiniband / ulp / ipoib



  • Option: INFINIBAND_IPOIB
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off/module) IP-over-InfiniBand
    • depends on INFINIBAND && NETDEVICES && INET
      Support for the IP-over-InfiniBand protocol (IPoIB). This transports IP packets over InfiniBand so you can use your IB device as a fancy NIC.
      The IPoIB protocol is defined by the IETF ipoib working group: <http://www.ietf.org/html.charters/ipoib-charter.html>.


  • Option: INFINIBAND_IPOIB_DEBUG
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off) IP-over-InfiniBand debugging
    • depends on INFINIBAND_IPOIB
      This option causes debugging code to be compiled into the IPoIB driver. The output can be turned on via the debug_level and mcast_debug_level module parameters (which can also be set after the driver is loaded through sysfs).
      This option also creates an "ipoib_debugfs," which can be mounted to expose debugging information about IB multicast groups used by the IPoIB driver.


  • Option: INFINIBAND_IPOIB_DEBUG_DATA
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off) IP-over-InfiniBand data path debugging
    • depends on INFINIBAND_IPOIB_DEBUG
      This option compiles debugging code into the data path of the IPoIB driver. The output can be turned on via the data_debug_level module parameter; however, even with output turned off, this debugging code will have some performance impact.
