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.
