Title: Running Infiniband on the Cray XT3

Abstract

In an effort to utilize the performance and cost benefits of the infiniband interconnect, this paper will discuss what was needed to install and load a single data rate infiniband host channel adapter into a service node on the Cray XT3. Along with the discussion on how to do it, this paper will also provide some performance numbers achieved from this connection to a remote system.
