rdma_listen - Man Page

Listen for incoming connection requests.


#include <rdma/rdma_cma.h>

int rdma_listen (struct rdma_cm_id *id, int backlog);



RDMA identifier.


backlog of incoming connection requests.


Initiates a listen for incoming connection requests or datagram service lookup.  The listen will be restricted to the locally bound source address.

Return Value

Returns 0 on success, or -1 on error.  If an error occurs, errno will be set to indicate the failure reason.


Users must have bound the rdma_cm_id to a local address by calling rdma_bind_addr before calling this routine.  If the rdma_cm_id is bound to a specific IP address, the listen will be restricted to that address and the associated RDMA device.  If the rdma_cm_id is bound to an RDMA port number only, the listen will occur across all RDMA devices.
