> Are there some figures about PVFS perfs over SCI and/or Myrinet ?
Yes, there are figures for PVFS performance over Myrinet - check the PVFS web page - they are in some of our papers - or talk to Rob Ross he has up-to-date
Those figures are for PVFS over TCP/IP over Myrinet. PVFS was written for
TCP/IP and won't run over anything else. At the time the project was
started SCI wasn't really a player yet.
PVFS2 will be protocol independent. We already have the network transport
mechanism (BMI) working and running well over TCP/IP and GM(Myrinet). It
should be portable to VIA and SCI.
