       Internet Small Computer System Interface (iSCSI) Extensions         for the Remote Direct Memory Access (RDMA) Specification


   Internet Small Computer System Interface (iSCSI) Extensions for    Remote Direct Memory Access (RDMA) provides the RDMA data transfer    capability to iSCSI by layering iSCSI on top of an RDMA-Capable    Protocol.  An RDMA-Capable Protocol provides RDMA Read and Write    services, which enable data to be transferred directly into SCSI I/O    Buffers without intermediate data copies.  This document describes    the extensions to the iSCSI protocol to support RDMA services as    provided by an RDMA-Capable Protocol.

   This document obsoletes RFC 5046.
