High Performance Computing Networking

Woo hoo!  The portable hardware locality project (hwloc) has finally hit release candidate status.  Much has changed since the v0.9 series, all of it for the better.  There’s an impressive array of features and other goodness contained in the upcoming v1.0 release (if I do say so myself — although the INRIA guys did most of the heavy lifting).  Check out the release announcement, or read below the jump for an abbreviated list of the new stuff.

I don’t normally make hooplah over release candidates, but we’d actually like to get people to give this stuff a whirl before it hits v1.0 so that we can iron out any kinks.

And if you’re wondering why a high-performance networking blog cares about a server-side software project that appears to have nothing to do with networking, read some of my prior posts.  Short version: this stuff already somewhat matters for networking performance.  It’s going to matter (much) more as time goes on.

Here’s a partial list of changes since the v0.9 series (which may change before v1.0 is final):
