    Do you need to use connected endpoints, or would reliable-connected work for your app? 

I don’t know the answer to that question. I always used verbs connected endpoint in the past and I wanted to get my libfabric conversion running essentially the same. Once I have it running my plan was to explore new features.

Did you mean unconnected endpoints? 

I was planning on experimenting with unconnected endpoints, but need to look into setting up the AV. Once I master that, then in principle, I would be very happy to use unconnected endpoints. I don’t see that managing N endpoints buys much and the idea of not having hem is appealing. Do they solve the problem of shared receive buffers?
