Indirect Rendering

When OpenGL commands are packaged up with the GLX library and transported across a network pipe (even if that network pipe is local) it is termed Indirect Rendering.


Indirect rendering is accelerated via the DRI driver as of Xorg 7.1. However, due to GLX's abandonment by spec authors and developers, it is limited to GL 1.4, and should be avoided whenever possible.
