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

NAME
rdma_post_send - post a work request to send a message. SYNOPSIS
#include <rdma/rdma_verbs.h> int rdma_post_send (struct rdma_cm_id *id, void *context, void *addr, size_t length, struct ibv_mr *mr, int flags); ARGUMENTS
id A reference to a communication identifier where the message buffer will be posted. context User-defined context associated with the request. addr The address of the memory buffer to post. length The length of the memory buffer. mr Optional registered memory region associated with the posted buffer. flags Optional flags used to control the send operation. DESCRIPTION
Posts a work request to the send queue of the queue pair associated with the rdma_cm_id. The contents of the posted buffer will be sent to the remote peer of a connection. RETURN VALUE
Returns 0 on success, or -1 on error. If an error occurs, errno will be set to indicate the failure reason. NOTES
The user is responsible for ensuring that the remote peer has queued a receive request before issuing the send operations. For a list of supported flags, see ibv_post_send. Unless the send request is using inline data, the message buffer must have been registered before being posted, with the mr parameter referencing the registration. The buffer must remain registered until the send completes. Send operations may not be posted to an rdma_cm_id or the corresponding queue pair until it has been connected. The user-defined context associated with the send request will be returned to the user through the work completion wr_id, work request identifier, field. SEE ALSO

NAME
rdma_post_write - post an RDMA write work request. SYNOPSIS
#include <rdma/rdma_verbs.h> int rdma_post_write (struct rdma_cm_id *id, void *context, void *addr, size_t length, struct ibv_mr *mr, int flags, uint64_t remote_addr, uint32_t rkey); ARGUMENTS
id A reference to a communication identifier where the request will be posted. context User-defined context associated with the request. addr The local address of the source of the write request. length The length of the write operation. mr Optional memory region associated with the local buffer. flags Optional flags used to control the write operation. remote_addr The address of the remote registered memory to write into. rkey The registered memory key associated with the remote address. DESCRIPTION
Posts a work request to the send queue of the queue pair associated with the rdma_cm_id. The contents of the local data buffer will be writen into the remote memory region. RETURN VALUE
Returns 0 on success, or -1 on error. If an error occurs, errno will be set to indicate the failure reason. NOTES
For a list of supported flags, see ibv_post_send. Unless inline data is specified, the local data buffer must have been registered before the write is issued, and the buffer must remain registered until the write completes. The remote buffer must always be registered. Write operations may not be posted to an rdma_cm_id or the corresponding queue pair until it has been connected. The user-defined context associated with the write request will be returned to the user through the work completion wr_id, work request identifier, field. SEE ALSO
