I do subscribe to O'Reilly Safare through my employer, I did find that
book when I did a search for Infiniband there. At 1280 pages, it's a bit
bigger than what I'm looking for. From the table of contents it looks
like there's a lot more low-level detail than I need, too. I'll take a
closer look, though, based on your advice.
