Not sure if I would even bother with running IB on BSD. We have enough
problems just getting things stable with Linux and mellanox ofed . Add all
of the documented build problems with the mellanox FDR cables and recalls
and you are guaranteed a nightmare. TACC, navy, and almost every center I
am aware of has replaced all or most or some of their FDR, including us.
As far as cards go it's all mellanox. Qlogic lost the game, still dealing
with a 12800 qlogic switch which is a total nightmare. Stick with
mellanox. Different vendors used to make their own fabric managers in the
early time of IB but now its best to stick with open ibd.
FreeBSD and IB gives me the chills just thinking about it.
