Binary package “rds-tools” in ubuntu maverick
Tools for the Infiniband RDS protocol
rds-tools is a collection of support tools for the
Reliable Datagram Socket (RDS) protocol.
RDS provides reliable, ordered datagram delivery by using a single
reliable connection between any two nodes in the cluster. This allows
applications to use a single socket to talk to any other process in the
cluster - so in a cluster with N processes you need N sockets, in contrast
to N*N if you use a connection-oriented socket transport like TCP.
