Comparing Ethernet & Soft RoCE over 1 Gigabit Ethernet
In recent years, the authors have witnessed a growing interest in optimizing the High Performance Computing (HPC) solutions using advanced CPU and Interconnect technologies. Recent trends in HPC systems have shown that future increases in performance can only be achieved through increases in system scale using a larger number of components, such as multi-cores and faster interconnects. RDMA is an emerging technology, which is used for reducing system load and improves the performance. In this paper, they evaluate the heterogeneous Linux cluster, having multi nodes with fast interconnects i.e. gigabit Ethernet and soft RoCE.
