ibv_create_srq_ex(3) create or destroy a shared receive queue (SRQ)

Other Alias



#include <infiniband/verbs.h>

struct ibv_srq *ibv_create_srq_ex(struct ibv_context *context, struct
ibv_srq_init_attr_ex *srq_init_attr_ex);

int ibv_destroy_srq(struct ibv_srq *srq);


ibv_create_srq_ex() creates a shared receive queue (SRQ) supporting both basic and xrc modes. The argument srq_init_attr_ex is an ibv_srq_init_attr_ex struct, as defined in <infiniband/verbs.h>.

struct ibv_srq_init_attr_ex {
void                   *srq_context;    /* Associated context of the SRQ */
struct ibv_srq_attr     attr;           /* SRQ attributes */
uint32_t                comp_mask;      /* Identifies valid fields */
enum ibv_srq_type       srq_type;       /* Basic / XRC */
struct ibv_pd          *pd;             /* PD associated with the SRQ */
struct ibv_xrcd        *xrcd;           /* XRC domain to associate with the SRQ */
struct ibv_cq          *cq;             /* CQ to associate with the SRQ for XRC mode */

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 */

The function ibv_create_srq_ex() will update the srq_init_attr_ex 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_ex() 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.
