    devices. This protocol allows InfiniBand hosts to natively send SCSI commands as if the storage was direct attached. The SRP protocol is designed to operate using an RDMA communication service. An RDMA communication service provides communication between pairs of consumers; it uses messages for control information and RDMA operations for data transfers.

  • Page 16: Understanding The Subnet Manager (sm)

    The Queue Pair (QP) is one of the primary architectural elements of InfiniBand. In InfiniBand, communication occurs between Queue Pairs, instead of between ports. A Queue Pair (QP) in an addressable entity, and consists of two Work Queues: 1). Send Work Queue and a 2).

    InfiniBand partitions are comparable to hardware-enforced security features of conventional I/O networking technologies, such as Ethernet VLANs and Fibre-Channel zones. Partition Members Without members, a Partition doesn’t have meaning to the system. Ports are added to the Partition, and become members of that Partition. Each port may be part of multiple partitions so that the system administrator can define overlapping partitions as the situation requires.

    Hex to Binary Conversions The following table is provided to assist in the creation of P_keys. When creating the Partition p_key, enter a hexidecimal value that is the equivalent of 16-bits in binary. For example, enter 80:00 (hex) to be 10000000000000000 (binary).
