Hello from Wales
Red Hat quoted just a simple ib_write_bw test as indicating the broken state of IB RDMA (https://access.redhat.com/solutions/3568891):
Run a RDMA write bandwidth test. ib_write_bw is provided by the package perftest.
On target node run :
On client side run :
# ib_write_bw <target-IP>
The test should fail.
Hope that helps

is there some kind of quick test to demonstrate the patch does have or does not cause a problem with RDMA? I have been asked to look into that but I don't really want to use a large cp2k calculation which, I believe, makes use of RDMA.
All the best from London
