I'd like to know if there are any linux distributions that are focused on low latency networking.
The area I'm working in is algorithmic trading, and extremely low latency comms between machines is a must. The current h/w we're using is 10g ethernet, we're looking into things like infiniband RDMA and Voltaire VMA
I've googled around, and have only been able to find tidbtits of kernel patches, command line options and hardware suggestions.
I'm looking for a complete solution, specially built kernel, kernel bypass features, essentially all the goodies rolled up into one package - does such a thing even exist?
I ask as a lot of this stuff seems to be a black art, people keep secret what they know works etc.
