Title: Arrangement for creating multiple virtual queue pairs from a compressed queue pair based on shared attributes

Abstract: A host channel adapter is configured for efficiently managing multiple queue pairs by compressing queue pairs having similar properties into queue pair tables configured for storing compressed queue pair entries having shared attributes. Hence, multiple virtual queue pairs can be created out of fewer physical queue pairs stored within a queue pair attribute database.
