IBV_CREATE_AH(3) Libibverbs Programmer's Manual IBV_CREATE_AH(3)

ibv_create_ah, ibv_destroy_ah - create or destroy an address handle (AH)

#include <infiniband/verbs.h>

struct ibv_ah *ibv_create_ah(struct ibv_pd *pd,
                             struct ibv_ah_attr *attr);

int ibv_destroy_ah(struct ibv_ah *ah);

ibv_create_ah() creates an address handle (AH) associated with the protection domain pd. The argument attr is an ibv_ah_attr struct, as defined in <infiniband/verbs.h>.

struct ibv_ah_attr {

struct ibv_global_route grh; /* Global Routing Header (GRH) attributes */ uint16_t dlid; /* Destination LID */ uint8_t sl; /* Service Level */ uint8_t src_path_bits; /* Source path bits */ uint8_t static_rate; /* Maximum static rate */ uint8_t is_global; /* GRH attributes are valid */ uint8_t port_num; /* Physical port number */
struct ibv_global_route {
union ibv_gid dgid; /* Destination GID or MGID */ uint32_t flow_label; /* Flow label */ uint8_t sgid_index; /* Source GID index */ uint8_t hop_limit; /* Hop limit */ uint8_t traffic_class; /* Traffic class */

ibv_destroy_ah() destroys the AH ah.

ibv_create_ah() returns a pointer to the created AH, or NULL if the request fails.

If port flag IBV_QPF_GRH_REQUIRED is set then ibv_create_ah() must be created with definition of 'struct ibv_ah_attr { .is_global = 1; .grh = {...}; }'.

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