1. I will have to check out the IB cards. I'm also revisiting the mpi aware bwc part of CADO-NFS, which I have experimented with already. I had some of the examples running, but not a real test case.

2. As to openmpi, if you're running Ubuntu 18.04, the repository openmpi is broken. It will not work if you try to use more than the localhost, which makes it rather useless. I've tried installing the latest version from the source site, but never got it to run, either. This is actually keeping me from upgrading all my 16.04 machines. I will try to search out the binaries and send them your way. I know there are three main files to install - openmpi-common, openmpi-bin and libopenmpi-dev. Give me a day or so. Locate and whereis didn't turn up anything.
