Solaris 10 What's New

Reliable Datagram Sockets

Starting with this release, Reliable Datagram Sockets (RDS) is a new protocol family that enables a socket to send messages to multiple destinations reliably over the InfiniBand interconnect.

RDS is delivered through a new SUNWrds package. The SUNWrds package consists of the rds and rdsib drivers for the socket and transport interface respectively.
