NAME

ibv_post_send - post a list of work requests (WRs) to a send queue

SYNOPSIS

#include <infiniband/verbs.h> int ibv_post_send(struct ibv_qp *qp, struct ibv_send_wr *wr, struct ibv_send_wr **bad_wr);

DESCRIPTION

ibv_post_send() posts the linked list of work requests (WRs) starting with wr to the send queue of the queue pair qp. It stops processing WRs from this list at the first failure (that can be detected immediately while requests are being posted), and returns this fail‐ ing WR through bad_wr. The argument wr is an ibv_send_wr struct, as defined in <infiniband/verbs.h>. struct ibv_send_wr { uint64_t wr_id; /* User defined WR ID */ struct ibv_send_wr *next; /* Pointer to next WR in list, NULL i ↲ f last WR */ struct ibv_sge *sg_list; /* Pointer to the s/g array */ int num_sge; /* Size of the s/g array */ enum ibv_wr_opcode opcode; /* Operation type */ int send_flags; /* Flags of the WR properties */ union { __be32 imm_data; /* Immediate data (in network ↲ byte order) */ uint32_t invalidate_rkey; /* Remote rkey to invalidate ↲ */ }; union { struct { uint64_t remote_addr; /* Start address of remote memory buf ↲ fer */ uint32_t rkey; /* Key of the remote Memory Region */ } rdma; struct { uint64_t remote_addr; /* Start address of remote memory buf ↲ fer */ uint64_t compare_add; /* Compare operand */ uint64_t swap; /* Swap operand */ uint32_t rkey; /* Key of the remote Memory Region */ } atomic; struct { struct ibv_ah *ah; /* Address handle (AH) for the remote ↲ node address */ uint32_t remote_qpn; /* QP number of the destination QP */ uint32_t remote_qkey; /* Q_Key number of the destination QP ↲ */ } ud; } wr; union { struct { uint32_t remote_srqn; /* Number of the remote SRQ */ } xrc; } qp_type; union { struct { struct ibv_mw *mw; /* Memory window (MW) of ty ↲ pe 2 to bind */ uint32_t rkey; /* The desired new rkey of ↲ the MW */ struct ibv_mw_bind_info bind_info; /* MW additional bind infor ↲ mation */ } bind_mw; struct { void *hdr; /* Pointer address of inline header */ uint16_t hdr_sz; /* Inline header size */ uint16_t mss; /* Maximum segment size for each TSO fragment */ } tso; }; }; struct ibv_mw_bind_info { struct ibv_mr *mr; /* The Memory region (MR) to bind the MW to ↲ */ uint64_t addr; /* The address the MW should start at */ uint64_t length; /* The length (in bytes) the MW should span ↲ */ int mw_access_flags; /* Access flags to the MW. Use ibv_access_f ↲ lags */ }; struct ibv_sge { uint64_t addr; /* Start address of the local memory ↲ buffer */ uint32_t length; /* Length of the buffer */ uint32_t lkey; /* Key of the local Memory Region */ }; Each QP Transport Service Type supports a specific set of opcodes, as shown in the follow‐ ing table: OPCODE | IBV_QPT_UD | IBV_QPT_UC | IBV_QPT_RC | IBV_QPT_XRC_SEND | IBV_Q ↲ PT_RAW_PACKET ----------------------------+------------+------------+------------+------------------+------ ↲ -------------- IBV_WR_SEND | X | X | X | X | ↲ X IBV_WR_SEND_WITH_IMM | X | X | X | X | IBV_WR_RDMA_WRITE | | X | X | X | IBV_WR_RDMA_WRITE_WITH_IMM | | X | X | X | IBV_WR_RDMA_READ | | | X | X | IBV_WR_ATOMIC_CMP_AND_SWP | | | X | X | IBV_WR_ATOMIC_FETCH_AND_ADD | | | X | X | IBV_WR_LOCAL_INV | | X | X | X | IBV_WR_BIND_MW | | X | X | X | IBV_WR_SEND_WITH_INV | | X | X | X | IBV_WR_TSO | X | | | | ↲ X The attribute send_flags describes the properties of the WR. It is either 0 or the bitwise OR of one or more of the following flags: IBV_SEND_FENCE Set the fence indicator. Valid only for QPs with Transport Service Type IBV_QPT_RC IBV_SEND_SIGNALED Set the completion notification indicator. Relevant only if QP was cre‐ ated with sq_sig_all=0 IBV_SEND_SOLICITED Set the solicited event indicator. Valid only for Send and RDMA Write with immediate IBV_SEND_INLINE Send data in given gather list as inline data in a send WQE. Valid only for Send and RDMA Write. The L_Key will not be checked. IBV_SEND_IP_CSUM Offload the IPv4 and TCP/UDP checksum calculation. Valid only when device_cap_flags in device_attr indicates current QP is supported by checksum offload.

RETURN VALUE

ibv_post_send() returns 0 on success, or the value of errno on failure (which indicates the failure reason).

NOTES

The user should not alter or destroy AHs associated with WRs until request is fully exe‐ cuted and a work completion has been retrieved from the corresponding completion queue (CQ) to avoid unexpected behavior. The buffers used by a WR can only be safely reused after WR the request is fully executed and a work completion has been retrieved from the corresponding completion queue (CQ). However, if the IBV_SEND_INLINE flag was set, the buffer can be reused immediately after the call returns.
