RDMA_GETADDRINFO(3) Librdmacm Programmer's Manual RDMA_GETADDRINFO(3)


rdma_getaddrinfo - Provides transport independent address translation.


#include <rdma/rdma_cma.h> int rdma_getaddrinfo (const char *node, const char *service, const struct rdma_addrinfo *hints, struct rdma_addrinfo **res);


node Optional, name, dotted-decimal IPv4, or IPv6 hex address to resolve. service Service name or port number of address. hints Reference to an rdma_addrinfo structure containing hints about the type of service the caller supports. res A pointer to a linked list of rdma_addrinfo structures containing response information.


Resolves the destination node and service address and returns information needed to estab‐ lish communication. Provides the RDMA functional equivalent to getaddrinfo.


Returns 0 on success, or -1 on error. If an error occurs, errno will be set to indicate the failure reason.


Either node, service, or hints must be provided. If hints are provided, the operation will be controlled by hints.ai_flags. If RAI_PASSIVE is specified, the call will resolve address information for use on the passive side of a connection. If node is provided, rdma_getaddrinfo will attempt to resolve the RDMA address, route, and connection data to the given node. The hints parameter, if provided, may be used to control the resulting output as indicated below. If node is not given, rdma_getaddrinfo will attempt to resolve the RDMA addressing information based on the hints.ai_src_addr, hints.ai_dst_addr, or hints.ai_route. rdma_addrinfo ai_flags Hint flags that control the operation. Supported flags are: RAI_PASSIVE Indicates that the results will be used on the passive/listening side of a connection. RAI_NUMERICHOST If specified, then the node parameter, if provided, must be a numerical net‐ work address. This flag suppresses any lengthy address resolution. RAI_NOROUTE If set, this flag suppresses any lengthy route resolution. RAI_FAMILY If set, the ai_family setting should be used as an input hint for interpret‐ ting the node parameter. ai_family Address family for the source and destination address. Supported families are: AF_INET, AF_INET6, and AF_IB. ai_qp_type Indicates the type of RDMA QP used for communication. Supported types are: IBV_UD (unreliable datagram) and IBV_RC (reliable connected). ai_port_space RDMA port space in use. Supported values are: RDMA_PS_UDP, RDMA_PS_TCP, and RDMA_PS_IB. ai_src_len The length of the source address referenced by ai_src_addr. This will be 0 if an appropriate source address could not be discovered for a given destination. ai_dst_len The length of the destination address referenced by ai_dst_addr. This will be 0 if the RAI_PASSIVE flag was specified as part of the hints. ai_src_addr If provided, the address for the local RDMA device. ai_dst_addr If provided, the address for the destination RDMA device. ai_src_canonname The canonical for the source. ai_dst_canonname The canonical for the destination. ai_route_len Size of the routing information buffer referenced by ai_route. This will be 0 if the underlying transport does not require routing data, or none could be resolved. ai_route Routing information for RDMA transports that require routing data as part of connection establishment. The format of the routing data depends on the underlying transport. If Infiniband transports are used, ai_route will refer‐ ence an array of struct ibv_path_data on output, if routing data is available. Routing paths may be restricted by setting desired routing data fields on input to rdma_getaddrinfo. For Infiniband, hints.ai_route may reference an array of struct ibv_path_record or struct ibv_path_data on input. ai_connect_len Size of connection information referenced by ai_connect. This will be 0 if the underlying transport does not require additional connection information. ai_connect Data exchanged as part of the connection establishment process. If provided, ai_connect data must be transferred as private data, with any user supplied private data following it. ai_next Pointer to the next rdma_addrinfo structure in the list. Will be NULL if no more structures exist.
