Thanks, it is too close to the Wikipedia description that can be written
slightly differently (without "two computers"), what about the following
description from Mellanox site?

"is a tool for querying and setting the configuration for RDMA-capable
devices. Remote direct memory access (RDMA) is the ability of accessing
(read, write) memory on a remote machine without interrupting the processing
of the CPU(s) on that system."

Thanks,
