A Python object API for managing the Linux LIO kernel target
rtslib-fb is an object-based Python library for configuring the LIO generic SCSI target, present in 3.x Linux kernel versions.
It supports both Python 2 and Python 3, thanks to the python-six library.
rtslib-fb is licensed under the Apache 2.0 license. Contributions are welcome.
Since rtslib-fb is used most often with targetcli-fb, the targetcli-fb mailing should be used for rtslib-fb discussion.
Packaging scripts for RPM and DEB are included, but these are to make end-user custom packaging easier -- distributions tend to maintain their own packaging scripts separately. If you run into issues with packaging, start with opening a bug on your distro's bug reporting system.
Some people do use these scripts, so we want to keep them around. Fixes for any breakage you encounter are welcome.
"fb" -- "free branch"
rtslib-fb is a fork of the "rtslib" code written by RisingTide Systems. The "-fb" differentiates between the original and this version. Please ensure to use either all "fb" versions of the targetcli components -- targetcli, rtslib, and configshell, or stick with all non-fb versions, since they are no longer strictly compatible.
