+===================
+Setting up NFS/RDMA
+===================
+
+:Author:
+ NetApp and Open Grid Computing (May 29, 2008)
+
+
+Overview
+========
+
+This document describes how to install and setup the Linux NFS/RDMA client
+and server software.
+
+The NFS/RDMA client was first included in Linux 2.6.24. The NFS/RDMA server
+was first included in the following release, Linux 2.6.25.
+
+In our testing, we have obtained excellent performance results (full 10Gbit
+wire bandwidth at minimal client CPU) under many workloads. The code passes
+the full Connectathon test suite and operates over both Infiniband and iWARP
+RDMA adapters.
+
+Getting Help
+============
+
+If you get stuck, you can ask questions on the
+nfs-rdma-devel@lists.sourceforge.net mailing list.
+
+Installation
+============
+
+These instructions are a step by step guide to building a machine for
+use with NFS/RDMA.
+
+- Install an RDMA device
+
+ Any device supported by the drivers in drivers/infiniband/hw is acceptable.
+
+ Testing has been performed using several Mellanox-based IB cards, the
+ Ammasso AMS1100 iWARP adapter, and the Chelsio cxgb3 iWARP adapter.
+
+- Install a Linux distribution and tools
+
+ The first kernel release to contain both the NFS/RDMA client and server was
+ Linux 2.6.25 Therefore, a distribution compatible with this and subsequent
+ Linux kernel release should be installed.
+
+ The procedures described in this document have been tested with
+ distributions from Red Hat's Fedora Project (http://fedora.redhat.com/).
+
+- Install nfs-utils-1.1.2 or greater on the client
+
+ An NFS/RDMA mount point can be obtained by using the mount.nfs command in
+ nfs-utils-1.1.2 or greater (nfs-utils-1.1.1 was the first nfs-utils
+ version with support for NFS/RDMA mounts, but for various reasons we
+ recommend using nfs-utils-1.1.2 or greater). To see which version of
+ mount.nfs you are using, type:
+
+ .. code-block:: sh
+
+ $ /sbin/mount.nfs -V
+
+ If the version is less than 1.1.2 or the command does not exist,
+ you should install the latest version of nfs-utils.
+
+ Download the latest package from: http://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/utils/nfs
+
+ Uncompress the package and follow the installation instructions.
+
+ If you will not need the idmapper and gssd executables (you do not need
+ these to create an NFS/RDMA enabled mount command), the installation
+ process can be simplified by disabling these features when running
+ configure:
+
+ .. code-block:: sh
+
+ $ ./configure --disable-gss --disable-nfsv4
+
+ To build nfs-utils you will need the tcp_wrappers package installed. For
+ more information on this see the package's README and INSTALL files.
+
+ After building the nfs-utils package, there will be a mount.nfs binary in
+ the utils/mount directory. This binary can be used to initiate NFS v2, v3,
+ or v4 mounts. To initiate a v4 mount, the binary must be called
+ mount.nfs4. The standard technique is to create a symlink called
+ mount.nfs4 to mount.nfs.
+
+ This mount.nfs binary should be installed at /sbin/mount.nfs as follows:
+
+ .. code-block:: sh
+
+ $ sudo cp utils/mount/mount.nfs /sbin/mount.nfs
+
+ In this location, mount.nfs will be invoked automatically for NFS mounts
+ by the system mount command.
+
+ .. note::
+ mount.nfs and therefore nfs-utils-1.1.2 or greater is only needed
+ on the NFS client machine. You do not need this specific version of
+ nfs-utils on the server. Furthermore, only the mount.nfs command from
+ nfs-utils-1.1.2 is needed on the client.
+
+- Install a Linux kernel with NFS/RDMA
+
+ The NFS/RDMA client and server are both included in the mainline Linux
+ kernel version 2.6.25 and later. This and other versions of the Linux
+ kernel can be found at: https://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/
+
+ Download the sources and place them in an appropriate location.
+
+- Configure the RDMA stack
+
+ Make sure your kernel configuration has RDMA support enabled. Under
+ Device Drivers -> InfiniBand support, update the kernel configuration
+ to enable InfiniBand support [NOTE: the option name is misleading. Enabling
+ InfiniBand support is required for all RDMA devices (IB, iWARP, etc.)].
+
+ Enable the appropriate IB HCA support (mlx4, mthca, ehca, ipath, etc.) or
+ iWARP adapter support (amso, cxgb3, etc.).
+
+ If you are using InfiniBand, be sure to enable IP-over-InfiniBand support.
+
+- Configure the NFS client and server
+
+ Your kernel configuration must also have NFS file system support and/or
+ NFS server support enabled. These and other NFS related configuration
+ options can be found under File Systems -> Network File Systems.
+
+- Build, install, reboot
+
+ The NFS/RDMA code will be enabled automatically if NFS and RDMA
+ are turned on. The NFS/RDMA client and server are configured via the hidden
+ SUNRPC_XPRT_RDMA config option that depends on SUNRPC and INFINIBAND. The
+ value of SUNRPC_XPRT_RDMA will be:
+
+ #. N if either SUNRPC or INFINIBAND are N, in this case the NFS/RDMA client
+ and server will not be built
+
+ #. M if both SUNRPC and INFINIBAND are on (M or Y) and at least one is M,
+ in this case the NFS/RDMA client and server will be built as modules
+
+ #. Y if both SUNRPC and INFINIBAND are Y, in this case the NFS/RDMA client
+ and server will be built into the kernel
+
+ Therefore, if you have followed the steps above and turned no NFS and RDMA,
+ the NFS/RDMA client and server will be built.
+
+ Build a new kernel, install it, boot it.
+
+Check RDMA and NFS Setup
+========================
+
+Before configuring the NFS/RDMA software, it is a good idea to test
+your new kernel to ensure that the kernel is working correctly.
+In particular, it is a good idea to verify that the RDMA stack
+is functioning as expected and standard NFS over TCP/IP and/or UDP/IP
+is working properly.
+
+- Check RDMA Setup
+
+ If you built the RDMA components as modules, load them at
+ this time. For example, if you are using a Mellanox Tavor/Sinai/Arbel
+ card:
+
+ .. code-block:: sh
+
+ $ modprobe ib_mthca
+ $ modprobe ib_ipoib
+
+ If you are using InfiniBand, make sure there is a Subnet Manager (SM)
+ running on the network. If your IB switch has an embedded SM, you can
+ use it. Otherwise, you will need to run an SM, such as OpenSM, on one
+ of your end nodes.
+
+ If an SM is running on your network, you should see the following:
+
+ .. code-block:: sh
+
+ $ cat /sys/class/infiniband/driverX/ports/1/state
+ 4: ACTIVE
+
+ where driverX is mthca0, ipath5, ehca3, etc.
+
+ To further test the InfiniBand software stack, use IPoIB (this
+ assumes you have two IB hosts named host1 and host2):
+
+ .. code-block:: sh
+
+ host1$ ip link set dev ib0 up
+ host1$ ip address add dev ib0 a.b.c.x
+ host2$ ip link set dev ib0 up
+ host2$ ip address add dev ib0 a.b.c.y
+ host1$ ping a.b.c.y
+ host2$ ping a.b.c.x
+
+ For other device types, follow the appropriate procedures.
+
+- Check NFS Setup
+
+ For the NFS components enabled above (client and/or server),
+ test their functionality over standard Ethernet using TCP/IP or UDP/IP.
+
+NFS/RDMA Setup
+==============
+
+We recommend that you use two machines, one to act as the client and
+one to act as the server.
+
+One time configuration:
+-----------------------
+
+- On the server system, configure the /etc/exports file and start the NFS/RDMA server.
+
+ Exports entries with the following formats have been tested::
+
+ /vol0 192.168.0.47(fsid=0,rw,async,insecure,no_root_squash)
+ /vol0 192.168.0.0/255.255.255.0(fsid=0,rw,async,insecure,no_root_squash)
+
+ The IP address(es) is(are) the client's IPoIB address for an InfiniBand
+ HCA or the client's iWARP address(es) for an RNIC.
+
+ .. note::
+ The "insecure" option must be used because the NFS/RDMA client does
+ not use a reserved port.
+
+Each time a machine boots:
+--------------------------
+
+- Load and configure the RDMA drivers
+
+ For InfiniBand using a Mellanox adapter:
+
+ .. code-block:: sh
+
+ $ modprobe ib_mthca
+ $ modprobe ib_ipoib
+ $ ip li set dev ib0 up
+ $ ip addr add dev ib0 a.b.c.d
+
+ .. note::
+ Please use unique addresses for the client and server!
+
+- Start the NFS server
+
+ If the NFS/RDMA server was built as a module (CONFIG_SUNRPC_XPRT_RDMA=m in
+ kernel config), load the RDMA transport module:
+
+ .. code-block:: sh
+
+ $ modprobe svcrdma
+
+ Regardless of how the server was built (module or built-in), start the
+ server:
+
+ .. code-block:: sh
+
+ $ /etc/init.d/nfs start
+
+ or
+
+ .. code-block:: sh
+
+ $ service nfs start
+
+ Instruct the server to listen on the RDMA transport:
+
+ .. code-block:: sh
+
+ $ echo rdma 20049 > /proc/fs/nfsd/portlist
+
+- On the client system
+
+ If the NFS/RDMA client was built as a module (CONFIG_SUNRPC_XPRT_RDMA=m in
+ kernel config), load the RDMA client module:
+
+ .. code-block:: sh
+
+ $ modprobe xprtrdma.ko
+
+ Regardless of how the client was built (module or built-in), use this
+ command to mount the NFS/RDMA server:
+
+ .. code-block:: sh
+
+ $ mount -o rdma,port=20049 <IPoIB-server-name-or-address>:/<export> /mnt
+
+ To verify that the mount is using RDMA, run "cat /proc/mounts" and check
+ the "proto" field for the given mount.
+
+ Congratulations! You're using NFS/RDMA!

- 4: ACTIVE
-
- where driverX is mthca0, ipath5, ehca3, etc.
-
- To further test the InfiniBand software stack, use IPoIB (this
- assumes you have two IB hosts named host1 and host2):
-
- host1$ ip link set dev ib0 up
- host1$ ip address add dev ib0 a.b.c.x
- host2$ ip link set dev ib0 up
- host2$ ip address add dev ib0 a.b.c.y
- host1$ ping a.b.c.y
- host2$ ping a.b.c.x
-
- For other device types, follow the appropriate procedures.
-
- - Check NFS Setup
-
- For the NFS components enabled above (client and/or server),
- test their functionality over standard Ethernet using TCP/IP or UDP/IP.
-
-NFS/RDMA Setup
-~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
-
- We recommend that you use two machines, one to act as the client and
- one to act as the server.
-
- One time configuration:
-
- - On the server system, configure the /etc/exports file and
- start the NFS/RDMA server.
-
- Exports entries with the following formats have been tested:
-
- /vol0 192.168.0.47(fsid=0,rw,async,insecure,no_root_squash)
- /vol0 192.168.0.0/255.255.255.0(fsid=0,rw,async,insecure,no_root_squash)
-
- The IP address(es) is(are) the client's IPoIB address for an InfiniBand
- HCA or the client's iWARP address(es) for an RNIC.
-
- NOTE: The "insecure" option must be used because the NFS/RDMA client does
- not use a reserved port.
-
- Each time a machine boots:
-
- - Load and configure the RDMA drivers
-
- For InfiniBand using a Mellanox adapter:
-
- $ modprobe ib_mthca
- $ modprobe ib_ipoib
- $ ip li set dev ib0 up
- $ ip addr add dev ib0 a.b.c.d
-
- NOTE: use unique addresses for the client and server
-
- - Start the NFS server
-
- If the NFS/RDMA server was built as a module (CONFIG_SUNRPC_XPRT_RDMA=m in
- kernel config), load the RDMA transport module:
-
- $ modprobe svcrdma
-
- Regardless of how the server was built (module or built-in), start the
- server:
-
- $ /etc/init.d/nfs start
-
- or
-
- $ service nfs start
-
- Instruct the server to listen on the RDMA transport:
-
- $ echo rdma 20049 > /proc/fs/nfsd/portlist
-
- - On the client system
-
- If the NFS/RDMA client was built as a module (CONFIG_SUNRPC_XPRT_RDMA=m in
- kernel config), load the RDMA client module:
-
- $ modprobe xprtrdma.ko
-
- Regardless of how the client was built (module or built-in), use this
- command to mount the NFS/RDMA server:
-
- $ mount -o rdma,port=20049 <IPoIB-server-name-or-address>:/<export> /mnt
-
- To verify that the mount is using RDMA, run "cat /proc/mounts" and check
- the "proto" field for the given mount.
-
- Congratulations! You're using NFS/RDMA!
