This document addresses enabling the use of Remote Direct Memory
Access (RDMA) by the Network File System (NFS) protocols. NFS
implementations historically incur significant overhead due to data
copies on end-host systems, as well as other processing overhead.
This document explores the potential benefits of RDMA to these
implementations and evaluates the reasons why RDMA is especially
well-suited to NFS and network file protocols in general. This
memo provides information for the Internet community.
This document is a product of the Network File System Version 4 Working Group of the IETF.
