Subject: [OMPI devel] RFC: WinVerbs BTL component
From: Shiqing Fan (fan_at_[hidden])
Date: 2011-02-22 06:28:27


WHAT: A new BTL component using WinVerbs API

WHY: Support Infiniband on Windows

WHERE: in ompi/mca/btl/wv

WHEN: Next Tuesday, 1st March 2011

======================================

The openib component was working for windows using the WinOF libibverbs
driver, which is based on WinVerbs. However, directly using WinVerbs API
will principally gain more performance. A new WinVerbs component was
built and optimized only for Windows platforms.
