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

       ibv_create_qp_ex, ibv_destroy_qp - create or destroy a queue pair (QP)

       #include <infiniband/verbs.h>

       struct ibv_qp *ibv_create_qp_ex(struct ibv_context *context,
                                       struct ibv_qp_init_attr_ex *qp_init_attr);

       int ibv_destroy_qp(struct ibv_qp *qp);

       ibv_create_qp_ex()  creates  a  queue  pair  (QP)  associated  with  the  protection  domain  pd.  The argument
       qp_init_attr_ex is an ibv_qp_init_attr_ex struct, as defined in <infiniband/verbs.h>.

       struct ibv_qp_init_attr_ex {
               void                   *qp_context;     /* Associated context of the QP */
               struct ibv_cq          *send_cq;        /* CQ to be associated with the Send Queue (SQ) */
               struct ibv_cq          *recv_cq;        /* CQ to be associated with the Receive Queue (RQ) */
               struct ibv_srq         *srq;            /* SRQ handle if QP is to be associated with an SRQ, otherwise NULL */
               struct ibv_qp_cap       cap;            /* QP capabilities */
               enum ibv_qp_type        qp_type;        /* QP Transport Service Type: IBV_QPT_RC, IBV_QPT_UC, IBV_QPT_UD or IBV_QPT_RAW_PACKET */
               int                     sq_sig_all;     /* If set, each Work Request (WR) submitted to the SQ generates a completion entry */
               uint32_t                comp_mask; /* Identifies valid fields */
               struct ibv_pd          *pd;        /* PD to be associated with the QP */
               struct ibv_xrcd        *xrcd;      /* XRC domain to be associated with the target QP */
               enum ibv_qp_create_flags create_flags;  /* Creation flags for this QP */

       struct ibv_qp_cap {
               uint32_t                max_send_wr;    /* Requested max number of outstanding WRs in the SQ */
               uint32_t                max_recv_wr;    /* Requested max number of outstanding WRs in the RQ */
               uint32_t                max_send_sge;   /* Requested max number of scatter/gather (s/g) elements in a WR in the SQ */
               uint32_t                max_recv_sge;   /* Requested max number of s/g elements in a WR in the SQ */
               uint32_t                max_inline_data;/* Requested max number of data (bytes) that can be posted inline to the SQ, otherwise 0 */

       The function ibv_create_qp_ex() will update the qp_init_attr_ex->cap struct with the actual QP values of the QP
       that was created; the values will be greater than or equal to the values requested.

       ibv_destroy_qp() destroys the QP qp.

       ibv_create_qp_ex()  returns  a  pointer  to  the created QP, or NULL if the request fails.  Check the QP number
       (qp_num) in the returned QP.

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

       The attributes max_recv_wr and max_recv_sge are ignored by ibv_create_qp_ex() if the QP  is  to  be  associated
       with an SRQ.

       ibv_destroy_qp() fails if the QP is attached to a multicast group.
