ibv_create_wq - Man Page

create or destroy a Work Queue (WQ).

Synopsis

#include <infiniband/verbs.h>

struct ibv_wq *ibv_create_wq(struct ibv_context *context,
                                     struct ibv_wq_init_attr *wq_init_attr);

int ibv_destroy_wq(struct ibv_wq *wq);

Description

ibv_create_wq() creates a WQ associated with the ibv_context context. The argument wq_init_attr is an ibv_wq_init_attr struct, as defined in <infiniband/verbs.h>.

struct ibv_wq_init_attr {
void                      *wq_context;    /* Associated context of the WQ */
enum ibv_wq_type           wq_type;       /* WQ type */
uint32_t                   max_wr;        /* Requested max number of outstanding WRs in the WQ */
uint32_t                   max_sge;       /* Requested max number of scatter/gather (s/g) elements per WR in the WQ */
struct  ibv_pd            *pd;            /* PD to be associated with the WQ */
struct  ibv_cq            *cq;            /* CQ to be associated with the WQ */
uint32_t                   comp_mask;     /* Identifies valid fields. Use ibv_wq_init_attr_mask */
uint32_t                   create_flags    /* Creation flags for this WQ, use enum ibv_wq_flags */
};


enum ibv_wq_flags {
IBV_WQ_FLAGS_CVLAN_STRIPPING            = 1 << 0, /* CVLAN field will be stripped from incoming packets */
IBV_WQ_FLAGS_SCATTER_FCS                = 1 << 1, /* FCS field will be scattered to host memory */
IBV_WQ_FLAGS_DELAY_DROP                 = 1 << 2, /* Packets won't be dropped immediately if no receive WQEs */
IBV_WQ_FLAGS_PCI_WRITE_END_PADDING      = 1 << 3, /* Incoming packets will be padded to cacheline size */
IBV_WQ_FLAGS_RESERVED                   = 1 << 4,
};

The function ibv_create_wq() will update the wq_init_attr->max_wr and wq_init_attr->max_sge fields with the actual WQ values of the WQ that was created; the values will be greater than or equal to the values requested.

ibv_destroy_wq() destroys the WQ wq.

Return Value

ibv_create_wq() returns a pointer to the created WQ, or NULL if the request fails.

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