NAME
       ibtl - Solaris InfiniBand Transport Layer

DESCRIPTION
       InfiniBand  (IB)  is  an  I/O technology based on switched fabrics. The Solaris InfiniBand
       Transport Layer (IBTL) is a Solaris kernel misc module and adheres to the IB  Architecture
       Version 1.1 specification and provides a transport layer abstraction to IB client drivers.

       IBTL  implements the programming interfaces for the Solaris InfiniBand Transport Framework
       (IBTF), consisting of the IB Channel Interface (CI) and the IB Transport Interface (TI).

       The CI consists of Host Channel Adapters (HCAs) and HCA drivers. A host is attached to the
       IB  fabric  through  the CI layer. The Solaris InfiniBand CI is Sun's API rendering of the
       InfiniBand Architecture (IBTA) "verbs" specification.

       The Solaris InfiniBand TI is the kernel service driver interface into the Solaris  Infini-
       Band  Transport	Framework.  It	provides  transport  and communications setup programming
       interfaces for Unreliable Datagram (UD) and Reliable Connected (RC) transport types only.
