ibv_query_device_ex — query an RDMA device's attributes

Synopsis

#include <infiniband/verbs.h>

int ibv_query_device_ex(struct ibv_context *context,
                        struct ibv_device_attr_ex *attr);

Description

ibv_query_device_ex() returns the attributes of the device with context context. The argument attr is a pointer to an ibv_device_attr_ex struct, as defined in <infiniband/verbs.h>.

Return Value

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

Notes

The maximum values returned by this function are the upper limits of supported resources by the device.  However, it may not be possible to use these maximum values, since the actual number of any resource that can be created may be limited by the machine configuration, the amount of host memory, user permissions, and the amount of resources already in use by other users/processes.
