The Development of Mellanox - NVIDIA GPUDirect over InfiniBand A New Model for GPU to GPU Communications Gilad Shainer
© 2010 MELLANOX TECHNOLOGIES Overview 2 The GPUDirect project was announced Nov 2009 “NVIDIA Tesla GPUs To Communicate Faster Over Mellanox InfiniBand Networks” http://www.nvidia.com/object/io_1258539409179.html GPUDirect was developed by Mellanox and NVIDIA New interface (API) within the Tesla GPU driver New interface within the Mellanox InfiniBand drivers Linux kernel modification GPUDirect availability was announced May 2010 “Mellanox Scalable HPC Solutions with NVIDIA GPUDirect Technology Enhance GPU-Based HPC Performance and Efficiency” http://www.mellanox.com/content/pages.php?pg=press_release_item &rec_id=427http://www.mellanox.com/content/pages.php?pg=press_release_item &rec_id=427

© 2010 MELLANOX TECHNOLOGIES System Architecture The InfiniBand Architecture (IBA) is an industry-standard fabric designed to provide high bandwidth, low-latency computing, scalability for ten-thousand nodes and multiple CPU/GPU cores per server platform and efficient utilization of compute processing resources. 40Gb/s of bandwidth node to node Up to 120Gb/s between switches Latency of 1μsec 9
© 2010 MELLANOX TECHNOLOGIES GPU-InfiniBand Bottleneck (pre-GPUDirect) For GPU communications “pinned” buffers are used A section in the host memory dedicated for the GPU Allows optimizations such as write-combining and overlapping GPU computation and data transfer for best performance InfiniBand uses “pinned” buffers for efficient RDMA Zero-copy data transfers, Kernel bypass 10 CPU GPU Chip set GPUMemory InfiniBand SystemMemory
© 2010 MELLANOX TECHNOLOGIES GPU-InfiniBand Bottleneck (pre-GPUDirect) The CPU has to be involved GPU to GPU data path For example: memory copies between the different “pinned buffers” Slow down the GPU communications and creates communication bottleneck 11 CPU GPU Chip set GPUMemory InfiniBand SystemMemory 1 1 2 2 CPU GPU Chip set GPUMemory InfiniBand SystemMemory 1 1 2 2 Transmit Receive

© 2010 MELLANOX TECHNOLOGIES GPUDirect Elements Linux Kernel modifications Support for sharing pinned pages between different drivers Linux Kernel Memory Manager (MM) allows NVIDIA and Mellanox drivers to share the host memory –Provides direct access for the latter to the buffers allocated by NVIDIA CUDA library, and thus, providing Zero Copy of data and better performance NVIDIA driver Allocated buffers by the CUDA library are managed by the NVIDIA Tesla driver Modifications to mark these pages to be shared so the Kernel MM will allows the Mellanox InfiniBand drivers to access them and use them for transportation without the need for copying or re-pinning them. Mellanox driver The InfiniBand application running over Mellanox InfiniBand adapters can transfer the data that resides on the buffers allocated by the NVIDIA Tesla driver Modifications to query this memory and to be able to share it with the NVIDIA Tesla drivers using the new Linux Kernel MM API Mellanox driver registers special callbacks to allow other drivers sharing the memory to notify any changes performed during run time in the shared buffers state, in order for the Mellanox driver to use the memory accordingly and to avoid invalid access to any shared pinned buffers 13
