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

NAME         top

       rdma_reg_write  -  register  data  buffer(s)  for  remote  RDMA write
       access.

SYNOPSIS         top

       #include <rdma/rdma_verbs.h>

       struct ibv_mr * rdma_reg_write (struct rdma_cm_id *id, void *addr,
       size_t length);

ARGUMENTS         top

       id          A reference to a communication identifier where the
                   message buffer(s) will be used.

       addr        The address of the memory buffer(s) to register.

       length      The total length of the memory to register.

DESCRIPTION         top

       Registers a memory buffer that will be accessed by a remote RDMA
       write operation.  Memory buffers registered using rdma_reg_write may
       be targeted in an RDMA write request, allowing the buffer to be
       specified on the remote side of an RDMA connection as the remote_addr
       of rdma_post_write, or similar call.

RETURN VALUE         top

       Returns a reference to the registered memory region on success, or
       NULL on error.  If an error occurs, errno will be set to indicate the
       failure reason.

NOTES         top

       rdma_reg_write is used to register a data buffer that will be the
       target of an RDMA write operation on a queue pair associated with an
       rdma_cm_id.  The memory buffer is registered with the proteection
       domain associated with the idenfier.  The start of the data buffer is
       specified through the addr parameter, and the total size of the
       buffer is given by length.

       All data buffers should be registered before being posted as a work
       request.  Users must deregister all registered memory by calling
       rdma_dereg_mr.
