Read this arcticle to the end:
"Finally, lets take a quick look at some performance measurements. From the Intel MPI Benchmark Suite V3.1 I used the MPI-1 part to measure the latency and bandwidth. Please note that you have to divide the PingPong-latency by two in order to get the "real" MPI-latency. In doing so we see a MPI latency of aboud 2.9 us on our 4x DDR InfiniBand. "
What? They divided the number of the benchmark by two? Correct me if i'm wrong but i was always assuming that the benchmark does this himself!
Can somebody confirm that?
