Check a MKEY for errors

Synopsis

#include <infiniband/mlx5dv.h>

int mlx5dv_mkey_check(struct mlx5dv_mkey *mkey,
              struct mlx5dv_mkey_err *err_info);

Description

Checks mkey for errors and provides the result in err_info on success.

This should be called after using a MKEY configured with signature validation in a transfer operation. While the transfer operation itself may be completed successfully (i.e. no transport related errors occurred), there still may be errors related to the integrity of the data. The first of these errors is reported to the MKEY and kept there until application software queries it by calling this API.

The type of error indicates which part of the signature was bad (guard, reftag or apptag). Also provided is the actual calculated value based on the transferred data, and the expected value based on the signature fields. Last part provided is the offset in the transfer that caused the error.

Arguments

mkey

The MKEY to check for errors.

err_info

The result of the MKEY check, information about the errors detected, if any.

struct mlx5dv_mkey_err {
    enum mlx5dv_mkey_err_type err_type;
    union {
        struct mlx5dv_sig_err sig;
    } err;
};
err_type

What kind of error happened. If several errors are found, only a single error is reported in this priority: MLX5DV_MKEY_SIG_BLOCK_BAD_GUARD, MLX5DV_MKEY_SIG_BLOCK_BAD_APPTAG, MLX5DV_MKEY_SIG_BLOCK_BAD_REFTAG.

MLX5DV_MKEY_NO_ERR

No error is detected for the MKEY.

MLX5DV_MKEY_SIG_BLOCK_BAD_GUARD

A signature error was detected in CRC/CHECKSUM for T10-DIF or CRC32/CRC32C/CRC64_XP10 (depends on the configured signature type). Additional information about the error is provided in struct mlx5dv_sig_err of err.

MLX5DV_MKEY_SIG_BLOCK_BAD_REFTAG

A signature error was detected in the reference tag. This kind of signature error is relevant for T10-DIF only. Additional information about the error is provided in struct mlx5dv_sig_err of err.

MLX5DV_MKEY_SIG_BLOCK_BAD_APPTAG

A signature error was detected in the application tag. This kind of signature error is relevant for T10-DIF only. Additional information about the error is provided in struct mlx5dv_sig_err of err.

err

Information about the detected error if err_type is not MLX5DV_MKEY_NO_ERR. Otherwise, its value is not defined.

Signature error

struct mlx5dv_sig_err {
    uint64_t actual_value;
    uint64_t expected_value;
    uint64_t offset;
};
actual_value

The actual value that was calculated from the transferred data.

expected_value

The expected value based on what appears in the signature respected field.

offset

The offset within the transfer where the error happened. In block signature, this is guaranteed to be a block boundary offset.

Return Value

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

Notes

A DEVX context should be opened by using mlx5dv_open_device(3).

Checking the MKEY for errors should be done after the application knows the data transfer that was using the MKEY has finished. Application should wait for the respected completion (if this was a local MKEY) or wait for a received message from a peer (if this was a remote MKEY).
