Abstract
iWARP is a set of standards enabling Remote Direct
Memory Access (RDMA) over Ethernet. iWARP
supporting RDMA and OS bypass, coupled with TCP/IP
Offload Engines, can fully eliminate the host CPU
involvement in an Ethernet environment. With the iWARP
standard and the introduction of 10-Gigabit Ethernet,
there is now an alternative path to the proprietary
interconnects for high-performance computing, while
maintaining compatibility with existing Ethernet
infrastructure and protocols.
Recently, NetEffect Inc. has introduced an iWARP­
enabled 10-Gigabit Ethernet Channel Adapter. In this
paper we assess the potential of such an interconnect for
