[zeromq-dev] Mellanox VMA - an interesting library to compare with ZeroMQ

Hi, I found an interesting linux library to compare with ZMQ. It looks as
pure software, and exactly what's written, its 'utilize a standard BSD
sockets'. 2.5 us TCP latency impresses! :)
So it's still some space to be faster without FPGAs.

Best regards,



Mellanox VMA 5.0 delivers sustainable latency under loads of over 2.5
million packets per second and dramatically improves UDP latency to under
2.0 microseconds and transparent sockets TCP latency to under 2.5
microseconds, nearly two times better than competitive offerings.


VMA is a dynamically-linked user-space Linux library for accelerating
messaging and streaming traffic. Applications that utilize standard BSD
sockets use the library to offload network processing from a server’s CPU,
with no application changes required.
