  • How to achieve an Intel® Cluster Ready Certification with Intel® Cluster Checker v3.0 on a Cluster using Mellanox InfiniBand HCAs

    This article describes the steps that are necessary to achieve an Intel® Cluster Ready Certification using Intel® Cluster Checker v3.0 on a cluster using the Mellanox InfiniBand cluster interconnect. In order to comply with the requirements of the Intel® Cluster Ready architecture specification, certain aspects of the cluster configuration have to be checked. Those requirements may not necessarily be checked for when checking for cluster health only. For clusters based on the Mellanox based InfiniBand interconnect this requires testing the DAPL message fabric interface and the TCP based fabric.

  • How to handle mismatched InfiniBand HCA and switch speed with Intel® Cluster Checker v3.0

    Intel® Cluster Checker v3.0 can detect the type of the InfiniBand Host Channel Adapter (HCA) that is installed in a cluster node. It can also determine what the expected performance for a given HCA is and use that performance to compare measured performance values with.

    Intel® Cluster Checker v3.0 does not have the ability to detect the InfiniBand switch type and can, therefore, not determine what the maximum possible performance of the overall InfiniBand fabric can be.

  • How to achieve an Intel® Cluster Ready Certification with Intel® Cluster Checker v3.0 on clusters with non-identical configuration of head and compute nodes

    This article describes the steps that are necessary to achieve an Intel® Cluster Ready Certification using Intel® Cluster Checker v3.0 on a cluster where the head node and compute nodes are using different hardware or software configurations. The compute nodes use identical hardware and software configurations.

  • Performance of Multibuffer AES-CBC on Intel® Xeon® Processors E5 v3

    This paper examines the impact of the multibuffer enhancements to OpenSSL* on the Intel® Xeon® processor E5 v3 family when performing AES block encryption in CBC mode. It focuses on the performance gains seen by the Apache* web server when managing a large number of simultaneous HTTPS requests using the AES128-SHA and AES128-SHA256 ciphers, and how they stack up against the more modern AES128-GCM-SHA256 cipher.

  • How to achieve an Intel Cluster Ready Certification with Intel® Cluster Checker v3.0 on a Cluster using the Intel® True Scale Fabric

    This article describes the steps that are necessary to achieve an Intel® Cluster Ready Certification using Intel® Cluster Checker v3.0 on a cluster using the Intel® True Scale fabric. In order to comply with the requirements of the Intel® Cluster Ready architecture specification 1.3.1, certain aspects of the cluster configuration have to be checked. Those requirements may not necessarily be checked for when checking for cluster health only. For clusters based on the Intel® True Scale fabric this requires testing the DAPL provider interface in addition to the native TMI message fabric interface and the TCP based fabric.
