how to compile perftest in Windows environment

Hello,

I have a task to compile perftest tools in Windows. I would like to check what are the environment / tool sets I need to compile this utility in Windows?

Any guideline/articles on this will be appreciated.

Thank you a lot.

We don’t provide any guidance on compiling perftest tool into windows, simply because “Perftest” package is already part & integrated within our Mellanox OFED for windows (WinOF) that you can find & download from our website (www.mellanox.com), so installing WinOF driver in your windows environment may do the job

Hi Aviap,

Thanks for reply.

I understood after install WinOF, there is perftest utility in Windows Server 2012.

Our test is to write our own application that support RDMA in Windows(RDMA Read and RDMA Write), so I wanted to refer to perftest as source code. so I was wondering what are the compilation tools / environments in Windows?

Our goal is to write our own C application that utilizes RDMA capability of Mellanox IB card. Any suggestions? How do a user do such development in Windows? Is there any open source project that I can refer to?

Thank you.

Hi Aviap,

I see in your windows install package, there are nd_write_bw, nd_send_bw etc. utility, does Mellanox provide the source code of these test utilities, and where can get get these source code?

We just would like to have some references for writing RDMA code in Windows.

Thank you.
