Extra info and code examples

librdmacm is a library that allows applications to set up reliable connected and unreliable datagram transfers when using RDMA adapters. It provides a transport-neutral interface in the sense that the same code can be used for both InfiniBand and iWARP adapters. The interface is based on sockets, but adapted for queue pair (QP) based semantics: communication must use a specific RDMA device, and data transfers are message-based. librdmacm only provides communication management (connection setup and tear-down) and works in conjunction with the verbs interface provided by libibverbs, which provides the interface used to actually transfer data. This package contains useful librdmacm1 example programs such as rping and udaddy.
