rpma_recv - initiate the receive operation
#include <librpma.h> struct rpma_conn; struct rpma_mr_local; int rpma_recv(struct rpma_conn *conn, struct rpma_mr_local *dst, size_t offset, size_t len, const void *op_context);
rpma_recv() initiates the receive operation which prepares a buffer for a message sent from other side of the connection. Please see rpma_send(3).
All buffers prepared via rpma_recv(3) form an unordered set. When a message arrives it is placed in one of the buffers awaitaning and a completion for the receive operation is generated.
A buffer for an incoming message have to be prepared beforehand.
The order of buffers in the set does not affect the order of completions of receive operations get via rpma_conn_completion_get(3).
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
In the RDMA standard, receive requests form an ordered queue. The RPMA does NOT inherit this guarantee.
The rpma_recv() function returns 0 on success or a negative error code on failure.
rpma_recv() can fail with the following errors:
RPMA_E_INVAL - conn or src is NULL
RPMA_E_PROVIDER - ibv_post_recv(3) failed
rpma_conn_req_connect(3), rpma_mr_reg(3), librpma(7) and https://pmem.io/rpma/
