Benchmarking InfiniBand

As I’ve already mentioned in my previous post called “Activating InfiniBand stack in Linux” there is a perftest package which has simple tests for benchmarking IB bandwidth and latency. Here go my results for default ib_write_bw and ib_write_lat tests. Write, read and send tests results don’t differ much, that’s why I’m posting only write results.

                    RDMA_Write BW Test
Number of qp's running 1
Connection type : RC
Each Qp will post up to 100 messages each time
Inline data is used up to 0 bytes message
  local address:  LID 0x04, QPN 0x18004a, PSN 0xcf8a2e
RKey 0x2c042529 VAddr 0x002af439bf2000
  remote address: LID 0x01, QPN 0x12004a, PSN 0xb446fe,
RKey 0x440428db VAddr 0x002b46ea9b5000
Mtu : 2048
 #bytes #iterations    BW peak[MB/sec]    BW average[MB/sec]
  65536        5000            1350.34               1350.27

                    RDMA_Write Latency Test
