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

NAME         top

       rdma_post_send - post a work request to send a message.

SYNOPSIS         top

       #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         top

       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         top

       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         top

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

NOTES         top

       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.
