Yes, the buffer was being re-used. No we didnt try to benchmark it with netpipe and other stuffs. But the program was pretty simple. Do you think, I need to test it with bigger chunks (>8MB) for communication.?We also tried manipulating eager_limit and min_rdma_sze, but no success.NeerajOn Fri, 12 Oct 2007 13:00:10 +0200 Open MPI Users wrote Hello, > The code was pretty simple.

Andy Friedley implements a \"traditional\" ACK based approach (like the one that the OSU folks published about some time ago) and I implemented a new idea for extreme scale (see \"A practically constant-time MPI Broadcast Algorithm for large-scale InfiniBand Clusters with Multicast\" [3]). I know that my version is still unstable and has some problems. But I\'m working on this.
