About Offload Over Fabric

Intel® Xeon Phi™ coprocessors introduced the offload programming model, allowing users to offload workloads over PCI Express. Offload Over Fabric (OOF) enables offloading to Intel® Xeon Phi™ processor compute nodes connected within a high-speed network. Communication with the networking layer is realized by the Open Fabric Interface API (OFI). Refer to the Programming and Compiling for Intel® Many Integrated Core Architecture article for more information on the available programming models. Refer to the Offload Over Fabric User’s Guide and How to use offload over fabric with Knights Landing (Intel® Xeon Phi™ processor) for more information on installation and configuration.

Hi Allan,

Source code is distributed in the Source Package Files (*.src.rpm). These files are inside of the *.tar file that you can download on this page. If you have issues with your default kernel, try with a newer version from kernel.org.

Thank you.

Hi Loc Q,

Does Intel provide open source code of these Intel® Xeon Phi™ Processor Software?  Where can I get it? I want to compile it and use it on the Debian system.

Thank you.

Hi Ofer,

The current version of Intel Xeon Phi Processor Software doesn't support Windows yet. We will communicate to users when it supports Windows.

Thank you.
