Enabling Connectionless DAPL UD in the Intel® MPI Library

What is DAPL UD?

Traditional InfiniBand* support involves MPI message transfer over the Reliable Connection (RC) protocol. While RC is long-standing and rich in functionality, it does have certain drawbacks: since it requires that each pair of processes setup a one-to-one connection at the start of the execution, memory consumption could (at the worst case) grow linearly as more MPI ranks are added and the number of pair connections grows.
