General informations

The Linux kernel configuration item CONFIG_RDMA_RXE:

Help text

This driver implements the InfiniBand RDMA transport over the Linux network stack. It enables a system with a standard Ethernet adapter to interoperate with a RoCE adapter or with another system running the RXE driver. Documentation on InfiniBand and RoCE can be downloaded at and (See also siw which is a similar software driver for iWARP.)

The driver is split into two layers, one interfaces with the Linux RDMA stack and implements a kernel or user space verbs API. The user space verbs API requires a support library named librxe which is loaded by the generic user space verbs API, libibverbs. The other layer interfaces with the Linux network stack at layer 3.
