rpma_mr_reg(3) RPMA Programmer's Manual rpma_mr_reg(3)

NAME

rpma_mr_reg - create a local memory registration object

SYNOPSIS

      #include <librpma.h>
      struct rpma_peer;
      struct rpma_mr_local;
      int rpma_mr_reg(struct rpma_peer *peer, void *ptr, size_t size,
              int usage, struct rpma_mr_local **mr_ptr);

DESCRIPTION

rpma_mr_reg() registers a memory region and creates a local memory registration object. The usage parameter specifies the operations that can be performed on the given memory region which should be expressed as bitwise-inclusive OR of the following:
  • RPMA_MR_USAGE_READ_SRC - memory used as a source of the read operation
  • RPMA_MR_USAGE_READ_DST - memory used as a destination of the read operation
  • RPMA_MR_USAGE_WRITE_SRC - memory used as a source of the write operation
  • RPMA_MR_USAGE_WRITE_DST - memory used as a destination of the write operation
  • RPMA_MR_USAGE_FLUSH_TYPE_VISIBILITY - memory with available flush operation
  • RPMA_MR_USAGE_FLUSH_TYPE_PERSISTENT - memory with available persistent flush operation
  • RPMA_MR_USAGE_SEND - memory used for send operation
  • RPMA_MR_USAGE_RECV - memory used for receive operation

RETURN VALUE

The rpma_mr_reg() function returns 0 on success or a negative error code on failure. rpma_mr_reg() does not set *mr_ptr value on failure.

ERRORS

rpma_mr_reg() can fail with the following errors:
  • RPMA_E_INVAL - peer or ptr or mr_ptr is NULL
  • RPMA_E_INVAL - size equals 0
  • RPMA_E_NOMEM - out of memory
  • RPMA_E_PROVIDER - memory registration failed
