Does HC treat Infiniband-connected servers as a single machine?
#1
Hello,

In c't 3/2013 there is written something about 5 Infiniband-connected servers each with 5 AMD GPU :-) Even I will never be able to afford such equipment, I would like to know:

Does Hashcat treat Infiniband-connected machines as a single server?


Thank's a lot for any feedback!

John

Hashcat by itself does not have any networking support. There are wrappers that can help you out with networking, like vcl and disthc, but I don't believe either supports infiniband.

john99, check out http://hashcat.net/wiki/doku.php?id=vcl_cluster_howto

yup, you can do IP over Infiniband (IPoIB), and therefore can do TCP over IP over Infiniband. we use 4x SDR in our vcl cluster.
