NAME

       rdma_create_ep - Allocate a communication identifier and optional QP.

SYNOPSIS

       #include <rdma/rdma_cma.h>

       int rdma_create_ep (struct rdma_cm_id **id, struct rdma_addrinfo *res, struct ibv_pd  *pd,
       struct ibv_qp_init_attr *qp_init_attr);

ARGUMENTS

       id          A reference where the allocated communication identifier will be returned.

       res         Address   information   associated   with   the   rdma_cm_id   returned   from
                   rdma_getaddrinfo.

       pd          Optional protection domain if a QP is associated with the rdma_cm_id.

       qp_init_attr
                   Optional initial QP attributes.

DESCRIPTION

       Creates an identifier that is used to track communication information.

RETURN VALUE

       Returns  0  on success, or -1 on error.  If an error occurs, errno will be set to indicate
       the failure reason.

NOTES

       After resolving address information using rdma_getaddrinfo, a user may use  this  call  to
       allocate an rdma_cm_id based on the results.

       If  the  rdma_cm_id  will  be  used  on  the  active  side  of  a connection, meaning that
       res->ai_flag does not have RAI_PASSIVE set, rdma_create_ep will automatically create a  QP
       on  the  rdma_cm_id  if  qp_init_attr  is  not  NULL.   The QP will be associated with the
       specified protection domain, if provided, or a default protection domain  if  not.   Users
       should  see  rdma_create_qp  for details on the use of the pd and qp_init_attr parameters.
       After calling  rdma_create_ep,  the  returned  rdma_cm_id  may  be  connected  by  calling
       rdma_connect.   The  active  side  calls  rdma_resolve_addr and rdma_resolve_route are not
       necessary.

       If the rdma_cm_id will be used on the passive side of a connection,  indicated  by  having
       res->ai_flag  RAI_PASSIVE  set,  this  call  will  save  the  provided pd and qp_init_attr
       parameters.  When a new connection request is retrieved by calling  rdma_get_request,  the
       rdma_cm_id  associated  with the new connection will automatically be associated with a QP
       using the pd and qp_init_attr parameters.   After  calling  rdma_create_ep,  the  returned
       rdma_cm_id  may  be placed into a listening state by immediately calling rdma_listen.  The
       passive side call rdma_bind_addr is  not  necessary.   Connection  requests  may  then  be
       retrieved by calling rdma_get_request.

       The  newly  created  rdma_cm_id will be set to use synchronous operation.  Users that wish
       asynchronous operation must migrate the rdma_cm_id to a user created event  channel  using
       rdma_migrate_id.

       Users must release the created rdma_cm_id by calling rdma_destroy_ep.
