    How to configure host chaining for ConnectX-5 VPI

    spickartz@eonerc.rwth-aachen.de

      Hello,

       

      I have four nodes equipped with dual-port ConnectX-5 VPI adapter cards. If I understand the product brief correctly, these support a cluster setup in terms of a ring topology (aka "host chaining"). Unfortunately, I could not find any documentation on how to configure the cards and Subnet Manager (SM) instances to connect all nodes of the cluster without an intermediate switch.

       

      Could you tell me if there is any documentation on that topic? Or do you have further information regarding this?

       

      Cheers,

      Simon
