ibv_create_srq: create or destroy a shared receive queue (SRQ)


ibv_create_srq, ibv_destroy_srq - create or destroy a shared receive queue (SRQ)


#include <infiniband/verbs.h>

struct ibv_srq *ibv_create_srq(struct ibv_pd *pd, struct 
                               ibv_srq_init_attr *srq_init_attr);

int ibv_destroy_srq(struct ibv_srq *srq);


ibv_create_srq() creates a shared receive queue (SRQ) associated with the protection domain pd. The argument srq_init_attr is an ibv_srq_init_attr struct, as defined in <infiniband/verbs.h>.

struct ibv_srq_init_attr {
void                   *srq_context;    /* Associated context of the SRQ */
struct ibv_srq_attr     attr;           /* SRQ attributes */

struct ibv_srq_attr {
uint32_t                max_wr;         /* Requested max number of outstanding work requests (WRs) in the SRQ */
uint32_t                max_sge;        /* Requested max number of scatter elements per WR */
uint32_t                srq_limit;      /* The limit value of the SRQ (irrelevant for ibv_create_srq) */

The function ibv_create_srq() will update the srq_init_attr struct with the original values of the SRQ that was created; the values of max_wr and max_sge will be greater than or equal to the values requested.

ibv_destroy_srq() destroys the SRQ srq.


ibv_create_srq() returns a pointer to the created SRQ, or NULL if the request fails.

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


ibv_destroy_srq() fails if any queue pair is still associated with this SRQ.
