[libfabric-users] 101 level question on providers

Hello all

Sorry for a very basic question, but them I am a novice on libfabric.

Is there a book or some manual that goes over the details? I have read the
documents that are mentioned in the libfabric website or the bundled code,
but do not seem to understand the design philosophy.

In particular, why is there a socket and a (separate) UDP provider? I
assume socket means IP socket; isn't UDP part of that already? And if not,
why is there not a TCP (or SCTP) provider?

Thanks in advance
