NAME

       rdma_notify - Notifies the librdmacm of an asynchronous event.

SYNOPSIS

       #include <rdma/rdma_cma.h>

       int rdma_notify (struct rdma_cm_id *id, enum ibv_event_type event);

ARGUMENTS

       id          RDMA identifier.

       event       Asynchronous event.

DESCRIPTION

       Used  to notify the librdmacm of asynchronous events that have occurred on a QP associated
       with the rdma_cm_id.

RETURN VALUE

       Returns 0 on success, or -1 on error.  If an error occurs, errno will be set  to  indicate
       the failure reason.  If errno is set to EISCONN (transport endpoint is already connected),
       this indicates that the the underlying communication manager  established  the  connection
       before  the call to rdma_notify could be processed.  In this case, the error may safely be
       ignored.

NOTES

       Asynchronous events that occur on a QP  are  reported  through  the  user's  device  event
       handler.   This  routine is used to notify the librdmacm of communication events.  In most
       cases, use of this routine is not necessary, however if connection establishment  is  done
       out  of band (such as done through Infiniband), it's possible to receive data on a QP that
       is not yet considered connected.  This routine forces the connection into  an  established
       state  in this case in order to handle the rare situation where the connection never forms
       on its own.  Calling this routine ensures the delivery  of  the  RDMA_CM_EVENT_ESTABLISHED
       event   to   the   application.    Events   that   should  be  reported  to  the  CM  are:
       IB_EVENT_COMM_EST.
