M-VIA is an implementation of the Virtual Interface Architecture (VIA) for Linux. VIA is a new
standard being promoted by Intel, Compaq and Microsoft that enables high performance
communication on clusters.
The software is still in beta testing and not really ready for public use.
- Modular design that makes is easy to port M-VIA to new hardware.
- Hardware accelerated or full software implementation, depending on
- High performance, through the use of fast traps and other techniques.
- Coexistence with traditional networking protocols (e.g. IP/TCP)
running on the same network.
- A robust full-featured implementation of VIA. M-VIA passes the strict
Intel conformance tests, ensuring that codes written using M-VIA will be
