Subject: Re: [OMPI users] gpudirect p2p (again)?

Yes, this feature is in Open MPI 1.7. It is implemented in the "smcuda" btl. If you configure as outlined in the FAQ, then things should just work. The smcuda btl will be selected and P2P will be used between GPUs on the same node. This is only utilized on transfers of buffers that are larger than 4K in size.
