thank you for your information
this is the information i need to start some test (with lustre in production)
'lctl --net tcp0 add_route client-ip at o2ib0'
for kevin we have o2ib and tcp on same ib interface (no problem)
in our environment (server 2.5.3 client 2.7.0 ) we use some Virtual machine as a lustre client
we have infiniband and 10G on our ESXIs
using Mellanox driver in ESXI and ip over ib for lustre on vm on top vmxnet3 card
perf was not so good
vm-client lustre 2.7 SL6 on ipoib vmware 5.5
write 104856690688 octets (105 GB) copiés, 438,965 s, 239 MB/s
write 104857600000 octets (105 GB) copiés, 383,271 s, 274 MB/s (no checksum)
using lnet router for lustre on vm on top vmxnet3 card and 10G interface on esxi
vm-client lustre 2.7 SL6 with real lnet router vmware 5.5
write 104857600000 octets (105 GB) copiés, 200,769 s, 522 MB/s
write 104857600000 octets (105 GB) copiés, 183,818 s, 570 MB/s (no checksum)
real o2ib client
write 104857600000 octets (105 GB) copiés, 166,029 s, 632 MB/s
quality of mellanox driver on esxi ?
