rdma_notify (3) - Linux Man Pages
rdma_notify: Notifies the librdmacm of an asynchronous event.
rdma_notify - Notifies the librdmacm of an asynchronous event.
(struct rdma_cm_id *id,
enum ibv_event_type event);
Used to notify the librdmacm of asynchronous events that have occurred
on a QP associated with the rdma_cm_id.
Returns 0 on success, or -1 on error. If an error occurs, errno will be
set to indicate the failure reason. If errno is set to EISCONN
(transport endpoint is already connected), this indicates that the
the underlying communication manager established the connection before
the call to rdma_notify could be processed. In this case, the error may
safely be ignored.
Asynchronous events that occur on a QP are reported through the user's
device event handler. This routine is used to notify the librdmacm of
communication events. In most cases, use of this routine is not
necessary, however if connection establishment is done out of band
(such as done through Infiniband), it's possible to receive data on a
QP that is not yet considered connected. This routine forces the
connection into an established state in this case in order to handle
the rare situation where the connection never forms on its own.
Calling this routine ensures the delivery of the RDMA_CM_EVENT_ESTABLISHED
event to the application.
Events that should be reported to the CM are: IB_EVENT_COMM_EST.
