rdma_reg_read - register data buffer(s) for remote RDMA read access.
struct ibv_mr * rdma_reg_read (struct rdma_cm_id *id, void *addr,
id A reference to a communication identifier where the message
buffer(s) will be used.
addr The address of the memory buffer(s) to register.
length The total length of the memory to register.
Registers a memory buffer that will be accessed by a remote RDMA read
operation. Memory buffers registered using rdma_reg_read may be
targeted in an RDMA read request, allowing the buffer to be specified
on the remote side of an RDMA connection as the remote_addr of
rdma_post_read, or similar call.
Returns a reference to the registered memory region on success, or NULL
on error. If an error occurs, errno will be set to indicate the
rdma_reg_read is used to register a data buffer that will be the target
of an RDMA read operation on a queue pair associated with an
rdma_cm_id. The memory buffer is registered with the proteection
domain associated with the idenfier. The start of the data buffer is
specified through the addr parameter, and the total size of the buffer
is given by length.
All data buffers should be registered before being posted as a work
request. Users must deregister all registered memory by calling
rdma_cm(7), rdma_create_id(3), rdma_create_ep(3), rdma_reg_msgs(3),
rdma_reg_write(3), ibv_reg_mr(3), ibv_dereg_mr(3), rdma_post_read(3)
