Goal

This document provides instructions for creating a database listener on Infiniband (IB) on SuperCluster. Creating such a listener enables DB clients to connect over IB (as opposed to over the Ethernet Client Access Network). This is typical for an application running on the SuperCluster in an Application Domain or Zone. Listeners over IB can be setup to use the TCP protocol, the SDP(Sockets Direct Protocol) protocol, or both.

Enabling SDP between an application and the database can require some extra licensing.
