RDMA Microconference Accepted into 2018 Linux Plumbers Conference

We are pleased to announce that the RDMA Microconference has been accepted into the 2018 Linux Plumbers Conference!

RDMA (remote direct memory access) is a well-established technology that is used in environments requiring both maximum throughputs and minimum latencies. For a long time, this technology was used primary in high-performance computing, high frequency trading, and supercomputing. For example, the three most powerful computers are based on Linux and RDMA (in the guise of Infiniband).

However, the latest trends in cloud computing (more bandwidth at larger scales) and storage (more IOPS) makes RDMA increasingly important outside of its initial niches. Therefore, clean integration between RDMA and various kernel susbsystems is paramount. We are therefore looking to build on previous years’ successful RDMA microconferences, this year discussing our 2018-2019 plans and roadmap.

Topics proposed for this year’s event include the interaction between RDMA and DAX (direct access for files), how to solve the get_user_pages() problem (seeĀ https://lwn.net/Articles/753027/ and https://lwn.net/Articles/753272/), IOMMU and PCI-E issues, continuous integration, python integration, and Syzkaller testing.

If you would like to contribute to the discussion, please feel free to contact Leon (leon@kernel.org) or Jason (jgg@ziepe.ca).
