NAME

       ibv_post_send - post a list of work requests (WRs) to a send queue

SYNOPSIS

       #include <infiniband/verbs.h>

       int ibv_post_send(struct ibv_qp *qp, struct ibv_send_wr *wr,
                         struct ibv_send_wr **bad_wr);

DESCRIPTION

       ibv_post_send()  posts the linked list of work requests (WRs) starting with wr to the send
       queue of the queue pair qp.  It stops processing WRs from this list at the  first  failure
       (that  can  be  detected  immediately  while  requests are being posted), and returns this
       failing WR through bad_wr.

       The argument wr is an ibv_send_wr struct, as defined in <infiniband/verbs.h>.

       struct ibv_send_wr {

       Each QP Transport Service Type supports a  specific  set  of  opcodes,  as  shown  in  the
       following table:

       OPCODE                      | IBV_QPT_UD | IBV_QPT_UC | IBV_QPT_RC | IBV_QPT_XRC_SEND | IBV_QPT_RAW_PACKET

       IBV_WR_TSO                  |     X      |            |            |                  |         X

       The attribute send_flags describes the properties of the WR. It is either 0 or the bitwise
       OR of one or more of the following flags:

       IBV_SEND_FENCE  Set the fence indicator. Valid only for QPs with  Transport  Service  Type
       IBV_QPT_RC

       IBV_SEND_SIGNALED   Set  the  completion  notification  indicator. Relevant only if QP was
       created with sq_sig_all=0

       IBV_SEND_SOLICITED  Set the solicited event indicator. Valid only for Send and RDMA  Write
       with immediate

       IBV_SEND_INLINE  Send data in given gather list as inline data
              in a send WQE.  Valid only for Send and RDMA Write.  The L_Key will not be checked.

       IBV_SEND_IP_CSUM  Offload the IPv4 and TCP/UDP checksum calculation.
              Valid  only  when device_cap_flags in device_attr indicates current QP is supported
              by checksum offload.

RETURN VALUE

       ibv_post_send() returns 0 on success, or the value of errno on  failure  (which  indicates
       the failure reason).

NOTES

       The  user  should  not  alter  or  destroy  AHs associated with WRs until request is fully
       executed and a work completion has been retrieved from the corresponding completion  queue
       (CQ) to avoid unexpected behavior.

       The  buffers used by a WR can only be safely reused after WR the request is fully executed
       and a work completion has been retrieved from the  corresponding  completion  queue  (CQ).
       However,  if  the IBV_SEND_INLINE flag was set, the buffer can be reused immediately after
       the call returns.

       IBV_WR_DRIVER1 is an opcode that should be used to issue a specific driver operation.
