ibv_query_port — query an RDMA port's attributes


#include <infiniband/verbs.h>

int ibv_query_port(struct ibv_context *context, uint8_t port_num,
                   struct ibv_port_attr *port_attr);


ibv_query_port() returns the attributes of port port_num for device context context through the pointer port_attr. The argument port_attr is an ibv_port_attr struct, as defined in <infiniband/verbs.h>.

struct ibv_port_attr {
enum ibv_port_state     state;          /* Logical port state */
enum ibv_mtu            max_mtu;        /* Max MTU supported by port */
enum ibv_mtu            active_mtu;     /* Actual MTU */
int                     gid_tbl_len;    /* Length of source GID table */
uint32_t                port_cap_flags; /* Port capabilities */
uint32_t                max_msg_sz;     /* Maximum message size */
uint32_t                bad_pkey_cntr;  /* Bad P_Key counter */
uint32_t                qkey_viol_cntr; /* Q_Key violation counter */
uint16_t                pkey_tbl_len;   /* Length of partition table */
uint16_t                lid;            /* Base port LID */
uint16_t                sm_lid;         /* SM LID */
uint8_t                 lmc;            /* LMC of LID */
uint8_t                 max_vl_num;     /* Maximum number of VLs */
uint8_t                 sm_sl;          /* SM service level */
uint8_t                 subnet_timeout; /* Subnet propagation delay */
uint8_t                 init_type_reply;/* Type of initialization performed by SM */
uint8_t                 active_width;   /* Currently active link width */
uint8_t                 active_speed;   /* Currently active link speed */
uint8_t                 phys_state;     /* Physical port state */
uint8_t                 link_layer;     /* link layer protocol of the port */
uint8_t                 flags;          /* Port flags */
uint16_t                port_cap_flags2;/* Port capabilities */

possible values for the link layer field are IBV_LINK_LAYER_INFINIBAND,

supported port flags:
IBV_QPF_GRH_REQUIRED - When this flag is set, the applications must create all AH with GRH configured.

Return Value

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