RFC4390 - Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) over InfiniBand
IP over Infiniband (IPoIB) link-layer address is 20 octets long. This is larger than the 16 octets reserved for the hardware address in a Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol/Bootstrap Protocol (DHCP/BOOTP) message. The above inequality imposes restrictions on the use of the DHCP message fields when used over an IPoIB network. This document describes the use of DHCP message fields when implementing DHCP over IPoIB. [STANDARDS-TRACK]
RFC4391 - Transmission of IP over InfiniBand (IPoIB)
This document specifies a method for encapsulating and transmitting IPv4/IPv6 and Address Resolution Protocol (ARP) packets over InfiniBand (IB). It describes the link-layer address to be used when resolving the IP addresses in IP over InfiniBand (IPoIB) subnets. The document also describes the mapping from IP multicast addresses to InfiniBand multicast addresses. In addition, this document defines the setup and configuration of IPoIB links. [STANDARDS-TRACK]
RFC4392 - IP over InfiniBand (IPoIB) Architecture
InfiniBand is a high-speed, channel-based interconnect between systems and devices.
This document presents an overview of the InfiniBand architecture. It further describes the requirements and guidelines for the transmission of IP over InfiniBand. Discussions in this document are applicable to both IPv4 and IPv6 unless explicitly specified. The encapsulation of IP over InfiniBand and the mechanism for IP address resolution on IB fabrics are covered in other documents. This memo provides information for the Internet community.
RFC4755 - IP over InfiniBand: Connected Mode
This document specifies transmission of IPv4/IPv6 packets and address resolution over the connected modes of InfiniBand. [STANDARDS-TRACK]
