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



NAME
       ibv_get_cq_event, ibv_ack_cq_events - get and acknowledge completion queue (CQ) events


SYNOPSIS
       #include <infiniband/verbs.h>

       int ibv_get_cq_event(struct ibv_comp_channel *channel,
                            struct ibv_cq **cq, void **cq_context);

       void ibv_ack_cq_events(struct ibv_cq *cq, unsigned int nevents);


DESCRIPTION
       ibv_get_cq_event()  waits  for  the  next  completion event in the completion event channel channel.  Fills the
       arguments cq with the CQ that got the event and cq_context with the CQ's context.

       ibv_ack_cq_events() acknowledges nevents events on the CQ cq.


RETURN VALUE
       ibv_get_cq_event() returns 0 on success, and -1 on error.

       ibv_ack_cq_events() returns no value.

NOTES
       All completion events that ibv_get_cq_event() returns must be acknowledged using ibv_ack_cq_events().  To avoid
       races,  destroying  a  CQ  will wait for all completion events to be acknowledged; this guarantees a one-to-one
       correspondence between acks and successful gets.

       Calling ibv_ack_cq_events() may be relatively expensive in the datapath, since it must take a mutex.  Therefore
       it  may  be better to amortize this cost by keeping a count of the number of events needing acknowledgement and
       acking several completion events in one call to ibv_ack_cq_events().

EXAMPLES
       The following code example demonstrates one possible way to work with completion events. It performs  the  fol-
       lowing steps:

       Stage I: Preparation
       1. Creates a CQ
       2. Requests for notification upon a new (first) completion event

       Stage II: Completion Handling Routine
       3. Wait for the completion event and ack it
       4. Request for notification upon the next completion event
       5. Empty the CQ

       Note  that  an  extra  event  may be triggered without having a corresponding completion entry in the CQ.  This
       occurs if a completion entry is added to the CQ between Step 4 and Step 5, and the CQ is then emptied  (polled)
       in Step 5.

       cq = ibv_create_cq(ctx, 1, ev_ctx, channel, 0);
       if (!cq) {
               fprintf(stderr, "Failed to create CQ\n");
               return 1;
       }

       /* Request notification before any completion can be created */
       if (ibv_req_notify_cq(cq, 0)) {
               fprintf(stderr, "Couldn't request CQ notification\n");
               return 1;
       }

       .
       .
       .

       /* Wait for the completion event */
       if (ibv_get_cq_event(channel, &ev_cq, &ev_ctx)) {
               fprintf(stderr, "Failed to get cq_event\n");
               return 1;
       }

       /* Ack the event */
       ibv_ack_cq_events(ev_cq, 1);

       /* Request notification upon the next completion event */
       if (ibv_req_notify_cq(ev_cq, 0)) {
               fprintf(stderr, "Couldn't request CQ notification\n");
               return 1;
       }

       /* Empty the CQ: poll all of the completions from the CQ (if any exist) */
       do {
               ne = ibv_poll_cq(cq, 1, &wc);
               if (ne < 0) {
                       fprintf(stderr, "Failed to poll completions from the CQ\n");
                       return 1;
               }

               /* there may be an extra event with no completion in the CQ */
               if (ne == 0)
                       continue;

               if (wc.status != IBV_WC_SUCCESS) {
                       fprintf(stderr, "Completion with status 0x%x was found\n", wc.status);
                       return 1;
               }
       } while (ne);

       The  following  code example demonstrates one possible way to work with completion events in non-blocking mode.
       It performs the following steps:

       1. Set the completion event channel to be non-blocked
       2. Poll the channel until there it has a completion event
       3. Get the completion event and ack it

       /* change the blocking mode of the completion channel */
       flags = fcntl(channel->fd, F_GETFL);
       rc = fcntl(channel->fd, F_SETFL, flags | O_NONBLOCK);
       if (rc < 0) {
            fprintf(stderr, "Failed to change file descriptor of completion event channel\n");
            return 1;
       }


       /*
        * poll the channel until it has an event and sleep ms_timeout
        * milliseconds between any iteration
        */
       my_pollfd.fd      = channel->fd;
       my_pollfd.events  = POLLIN;
       my_pollfd.revents = 0;

       do {
            rc = poll(&my_pollfd, 1, ms_timeout);
       } while (rc == 0);
       if (rc < 0) {
            fprintf(stderr, "poll failed\n");
            return 1;
       }
       ev_cq = cq;

       /* Wait for the completion event */
       if (ibv_get_cq_event(channel, &ev_cq, &ev_ctx)) {
               fprintf(stderr, "Failed to get cq_event\n");
               return 1;
       }

       /* Ack the event */
       ibv_ack_cq_events(ev_cq, 1);
