NAME

       rdma_reg_read - register data buffer(s) for remote RDMA read access.

SYNOPSIS

       #include <rdma/rdma_verbs.h>

       struct ibv_mr * rdma_reg_read (struct rdma_cm_id *id, void *addr, size_t length);

ARGUMENTS

       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.

DESCRIPTION

       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.

RETURN VALUE

       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 failure reason.

NOTES

       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_dereg_mr.
