NAME

       rstream - streaming over RDMA ping-pong test.

SYNOPSIS

       rstream [-s server_address] [-b bind_address] [-f address_format]
                      [-B buffer_size] [-I iterations] [-C transfer_count]
                      [-S transfer_size] [-p server_port] [-T test_option]

DESCRIPTION

       Uses  the  streaming  over  RDMA protocol (rsocket) to connect and exchange data between a
       client and server application.

OPTIONS

       -s server_address
              The network name or IP address of the server system listening for connections.  The
              used name or address must route over an RDMA device.  This option must be specified
              by the client.

       -b bind_address
              The local network address to bind to.

       -f address_format
              Supported address formats are ip, ipv6, gid, or name.

       -B buffer_size
              Indicates the size of the send and receive network buffers.

       -I iterations
              The number of times that the specified number of messages will be exchanged between
              the client and server.  (default 1000)

       -C transfer_count
              The  number of messages to transfer from the client to the server and back again on
              each iteration.  (default 1000)

       -S transfer_size
              The size of each send transfer, in bytes.  (default 1000)  If 'all'  is  specified,
              rstream will run a series of tests of various sizes.

       -p server_port
              The server's port number.

       -T test_option
              Specifies test parameters.  Available options are:

       s | socket  - uses standard socket calls to transfer data

       a | async - uses asynchronous operation (e.g. select / poll)

       b | blocking - uses blocking calls

       f | fork - fork server processing (forces -T s option)

       n | nonblocking - uses non-blocking calls

       r | resolve - use rdma cm to resolve address

       v | verify - verifies data transfers

NOTES

       Basic  usage  is to start rstream on a server system, then run rstream -s server_name on a
       client system.  By default, rstream will run a series of latency and bandwidth performance
       tests.   Specifying  a  different  iterations, transfer_count, or transfer_size will run a
       user customized test using default values where none have been specified.

       Because this test maps RDMA resources to userspace,  users  must  ensure  that  they  have
       available system resources and permissions.  See the libibverbs README file for additional
       details.
