NAME

       mlx5dv_create_flow_matcher - creates a matcher to be used with mlx5dv_create_flow(3)

SYNOPSIS

              #include <infiniband/mlx5dv.h>

              struct mlx5dv_flow_matcher *
              mlx5dv_create_flow_matcher(struct ibv_context *context,
                             struct mlx5dv_flow_matcher_attr *attr)

DESCRIPTION

       mlx5dv_create_flow_matcher()   creates   a   flow   matcher   (mask)   to   be  used  with
       mlx5dv_create_flow(3).

ARGUMENTS

       Please see ibv_open_device(3) for context.

   attr
              struct mlx5dv_flow_matcher_attr {
                  enum ibv_flow_attr_type type;
                  uint32_t flags; /* From enum ibv_flow_flags */
                  uint16_t priority;
                  uint8_t match_criteria_enable; /* Device spec format */
                  struct mlx5dv_flow_match_parameters *match_mask;
                  uint64_t comp_mask;
                  enum mlx5dv_flow_table_type ft_type;
              };

       type   Type of matcher to be  created:  IBV_FLOW_ATTR_NORMAL:  Normal  rule  according  to
              specification.

       flags  special  flags  to  control rule: 0: Nothing or zero value means matcher will store
              ingress flow rules.  IBV_FLOW_ATTR_FLAGS_EGRESS: Specified this matcher will  store
              egress flow rules.

       priority
              See ibv_create_flow(3).

       match_criteria_enable
              What match criteria is configured in match_mask, passed in device spec format.

   match_mask
              struct mlx5dv_flow_match_parameters {
                  size_t match_sz;
                  uint64_t match_buf[]; /* Device spec format */
              };

       match_sz
              Size in bytes of match_buf.

       match_buf
              Set which mask to be used, passed in device spec format.

       comp_mask
              MLX5DV_FLOW_MATCHER_MASK_FT_TYPE for ft_type

   ft_type
       Specified   in   which   flow   table  type,  the  matcher  will  store  the  flow  rules:
       MLX5DV_FLOW_TABLE_TYPE_NIC_RX: Specified this  matcher  will  store  ingress  flow  rules.
       MLX5DV_FLOW_TABLE_TYPE_NIC_TX  Specified  this  matcher  will  store  egress  flow  rules.
       MLX5DV_FLOW_TABLE_TYPE_FDB : Specified this matcher will store FDB rules.

RETURN VALUE

       mlx5dv_create_flow_matcher returns a pointer to mlx5dv_flow_matcher, on error NULL will be
       returned and errno will be set.
