An Introduction to the OpenFabrics Interface API

SESSION: An Introduction to the OpenFabrics Interface API

EVENT TYPE: Tutorials

EVENT TAG(S): Networks

TIME: 1:30PM - 5:00PM

Presenter(s):Sean Hefty, Dave Goodell, Robert D. Russell, Howard Pritchard, Paul Grun



The OpenFabrics Alliance has been the focal point for an open source project known as the OpenFabrics Interface (OFI) or libfabric. The desire for a new application-centric approach to developing fabric APIs was first expressed at a BoF held during SC13; this tutorial describes the API that the community of OFI developers designed to fulfill the challenges outlined at that BoF. The new library contains a set of fabric APIs that build upon and expand the goals and objectives of the original Verbs API but with a special emphasis on scalability, availability across a range of RDMA-capable networks and on serving HPC applications among others. Under active development by a broad coalition of industry, academic and national labs partners for two years, the new OFI API has matured to a point where it is ready for use by the SC15 community. This tutorial strengthens the engagement with the community of consumers who will benefit most directly from the new API by providing a high-level introduction, a detailed look at the architecture and hands on experience with running a simple applications over the OFI API.
