RDMA-SYSTEM(8)                      Linux                     RDMA-SYSTEM(8)

NAME         top

       rdma-system - RDMA subsystem configuration

SYNOPSIS         top

       rdma [ OPTIONS ] sys  { COMMAND | help }

       OPTIONS := { -V[ersion] | -d[etails] }

       rdma system show

       rdma system set netns NEWMODE

       rdma system help

DESCRIPTION         top

   rdma system set - set RDMA subsystem network namespace mode
   rdma system show - display RDMA subsystem network namespace mode
       NEWMODE - specifies the RDMA subsystem mode. Either exclusive or
       shared.  When user wants to assign dedicated RDMA device to a
       particular network namespace, exclusive mode should be set before
       creating any network namespace. If there are active network
       namespaces and if one or more RDMA devices exist, changing mode from
       shared to exclusive returns error code EBUSY.

       When RDMA subsystem is in shared mode, RDMA device is accessible in
       all network namespace. When RDMA device isolation among multiple
       network namespaces is not needed, shared mode can be used.

       It is preferred to not change the subsystem mode when there is active
       RDMA traffic running, even though it is supported.

EXAMPLES         top

       rdma system show
           Shows the state of RDMA subsystem network namespace mode on the

       rdma system set netns exclusive
           Sets the RDMA subsystem in network namespace exclusive mode. In
           this mode RDMA devices are visible only in single network

       rdma system set netns shared
           Sets the RDMA subsystem in network namespace shared mode. In this
           mode RDMA devices are shared among network namespaces.
