TCP/IP with Trapeze/Myrinet

  This section presents background material important for understanding the performance results in Section 3. We first give an overview of the Trapeze messaging system, with a focus on the features relevant to TCP/IP networking. We then outline the optimizations used above and below the TCP/IP protocol stack to reduce data movement overhead and per-packet handling costs.
