"Our analysis leads us to believe that the IPoIB limitations
seen in our tests are due to the high IPoIB stack overhead.
We believe that applying modern communication protocols,      
like RDMA, would improve this performance. " 

from the report ---  I can confirm this, as the IPoIB driver consumers
considerable CPU, which RDMA OFED does not.

also, if you want to measure latency, setting

on the client will greatly affect latency
