A First Look At VXLAN over Infiniband Network On Linux 3.7-rc7 & iproute2

  1. 1. 29 Nov, 2012 SAKURA Internet Research Center Senior Researcher / Naoto MATSUMOTO
  2. 2. VXLAN TESTING Overview 1) Linux bridge-based VXLAN is developing by Stephen Hemminger & et al. http://linux-network-plumber.blogspot.jp/2012/09/just-published-linux-kernel.html +config VXLAN + tristate "Virtual eXtensible Local Area Network (VXLAN)" + depends on EXPERIMENTAL + ---help--- + This allows one to create vxlan virtual interfaces that provide + Layer 2 Networks over Layer 3 Networks. VXLAN is often used + to tunnel virtual network infrastructure in virtualized environments. + For more information see: + http://tools.ietf.org/html/draft-mahalingam-dutt-dcops-vxlan-02 2) Infiniband Adapter is the fastest of all for datacenter networking. Dual-port Infiniband FDR 56Gbit/s Host Bus Adapter VXLAN + IP over Infiniband Network is AWESOME!.
  3. 3. Buildup to the New Kernel & etc 1) Install OFED for Infiniband Networking # wget https://www.openfabrics.org/downloads/OFED/ofed-1.5.4/OFED-1.5.4.1.tgz # tar xzvf ./OFED-1.5.4.1.tgz # ./OFED-1.5.4.1/install.pl /*Install OFED software */ # sync; sync; sync; reboot; 2) Linux Kernel Update # cd /usr/local/src # wget http://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/v3.0/testing/linux-3.7-rc7.tar.bz2 # tar xvfj linux-3.7-rc7.tar.bz2 # cd linux-3.7-rc7 # cp /boot/config-2.6.32-220.23.1.el6.x86_64 ./.config # make oldconfig # vi .config CONFIG_VXLAN=m /* Add New Line */ # make; make modules_install ; make install # sync; sync; sync; reboot 3) iproute2 Update # yum install db4-devel.x86_64 # git clone git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/shemminger/iproute2.git # cd iproute2; ./configure ; make ; make install Source: SAKURA Internet Research Center. 11/2012: Project THORN
