DescriptionApplication performance and scalability is affected by the design and usability of network APIs. Open Fabrics libfabric promises high-performance access to fabric services, through an implementation agnostic interface.
Based on the architectural work that went into the creation of a fabric-agnostic API, Open Fabrics is a natural fit for discussing expanding the adoption of fabric APIs.
This BoF will begin with a series of lightning talks to share experiences developing to libfabric. It will conclude by proposing that Open Fabrics develop fabric extensions to the C++ networking technical specification, for submission to the ISO C++ standards committee.
