IBV_ALLOC_MW(3) Libibverbs Programmer's Manual IBV_ALLOC_MW(3)
ibv_alloc_mw, ibv_dealloc_mw - allocate or deallocate a memory window (MW)
#include <infiniband/verbs.h> struct ibv_mw *ibv_alloc_mw(struct ibv_pd *pd, enum ibv_mw_type type); int ibv_dealloc_mw(struct ibv_mw *mw);
ibv_alloc_mw() allocates a memory window (MW) associated with the protection domain pd. The MW's type (1 or 2A/2B) is type. The MW is created not bound. For it to be useful, the MW must be bound, through either ibv_bind_mw (type 1) or a special WR (type 2). Once bound, the memory window allows RDMA (remote) access to a subset of the MR to which it was bound, until invalidated by: ibv_bind_mw verb with zero length for type 1, IBV_WR_LOCAL_INV/IBV_WR_SEND_WITH_INV WR opcode for type 2, deallocation. ibv_dealloc_mw() Unbinds in case was previously bound and deallocates the MW mw.
ibv_alloc_mw() returns a pointer to the allocated MW, or NULL if the request fails. The remote key (R_Key) field rkey is used by remote processes to perform Atomic and RDMA operations. This key will be changed during bind operations. The remote process places this rkey as the rkey field of struct ibv_send_wr passed to the ibv_post_send function. ibv_dealloc_mw() returns 0 on success, or the value of errno on failure (which indicates the failure reason).
ibv_dereg_mr() fails if any memory window is still bound to this MR.
