NAME         top

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

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.
