Asymmetric test success/failure profile for soft RoCE & hardware interaction...

My test matrix looks like below- lots of failures. I wonder why…

Inbox drivers on hardware <–> Inbox drivers on hardware on same card & IP: basic send/receive success, pingpong success

Inbox drivers on hardware <–> OFED softRoCE with different IP: pingpong -fails-, basic send/receive -fails-

OFED softRoCE <–> OFED softRoCE on different VM & IP: pingpong succeeds, basic send/receive -fails-

Failure seems to depend on whether SoftRoCE is in the mix…

Hi ,

Please refer to the following community guide :

Note: To get Soft-RoCE capabilities, you need to install the kernel and user space libraries on both servers

Thanks,
