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.
