Using LLT over RDMA: supported use cases

You can configure the LLT over RDMA capability for the following use cases:

Both Cluster File System (CFS) and Cluster Volume Manager (CVM) are clients of LLT and GAB. These clients use LLT as the transport protocol for data transfer between applications on nodes. Using LLT data transfer over an RDMA network boosts performance of file system data transfer and IO transfer between nodes.

To enable RDMA capability for faster application data transfer between nodes, you must install RDMA-capable network interface cards, RDMA-supported network switches, configure the operating system for RDMA, and configure LLT.

Ensure that you select RDMA-supported hardware and configure LLT to use RDMA functionality.
