The Remote Direct Memory Access (RDMA) Transport for Remote Procedure Call (RPC) [RFC5666] allows an RPC client application to post buffers in a Chunk list for specific arguments and results from an RPC call. The RDMA transport header conveys this list of client buffer addresses to the server where the application can associate them with client data and use RDMA operations to transfer the results directly to and from the posted buffers on the client. The client and server must agree on a consistent mapping of posted buffers to RPC. This document details the mapping for each version of the NFS protocol [RFC1094] [RFC1813] [RFC3530] [RFC5661].

Network File System (NFS) Direct Data Placement
This document defines the bindings of the various Network File System (NFS) versions to the Remote Direct Memory Access (RDMA) operations supported by the RPC/RDMA transport protocol. It describes the use of direct data placement by means of server-initiated RDMA operations into client-supplied buffers for implementations of NFS versions 2, 3, 4, and 4.1 over such an RDMA transport.
