rpma_write_atomic - initiate the atomic write operation (deprecated)


      #include <librpma.h>

      struct rpma_conn;
      struct rpma_mr_local;
      struct rpma_mr_remote;
      int rpma_write_atomic(struct rpma_conn *conn,
                      struct rpma_mr_remote *dst, size_t dst_offset,
                      const struct rpma_mr_local *src,  size_t src_offset,
                      int flags, const void *op_context);


rpma_write_atomic() initiates the atomic write operation (transferring data from the local memory to the remote memory). The atomic write operation allows transferring 8 bytes of data (RPMA_ATOMIC_WRITE_ALIGNMENT) and storing them atomically in the remote memory.

The attribute flags set the completion notification indicator:

  • RPMA_F_COMPLETION_ON_ERROR - generate the completion on error

  • RPMA_F_COMPLETION_ALWAYS - generate the completion regardless of result of the operation.

op_context is returned in the wr_id field of the completion (struct ibv_wc).


The rpma_write_atomic() function returns 0 on success or a negative error code on failure.


rpma_write_atomic() can fail with the following errors:

  • RPMA_E_INVAL - conn, dst or src is NULL

  • RPMA_E_INVAL - dst_offset is not aligned to 8 bytes

  • RPMA_E_INVAL - flags are not set

  • RPMA_E_PROVIDER - ibv_post_send(3) failed


This API call should be replaced with rpma_atomic_write(). This is an example snippet of code using the old API:

        struct rpma_conn *conn;
        struct rpma_mr_remote *dst;
        struct rpma_mr_local *src;

        ret = rpma_write_atomic(conn, dst, dst_offset, src, src_offset,
        if (ret) { error_handling_code() }

The above snippet should be replaced with the following one using the new API:

        struct rpma_conn *conn;
        struct rpma_mr_remote *dst;
        char src[8];

        ret = rpma_atomic_write(conn, dst, dst_offset, src,
        if (ret) { error_handling_code() }
