Introduction ------------- Linux target framework (tgt) aims to simplify various SCSI target driver (iSCSI, Fibre Channel, SRP, etc) creation and maintenance. Currently, tgt supports the following target drivers: - iSCSI software target driver for Ethernet NICs - iSER software target driver for Infiniband and RDMA NICs - IBM System p VIO server - FCoE software target driver for Ethernet NICs (in progress) - Qlogic qla2xxx FC target driver (in progress) Tgt consists of kernel modules, user-space daemon, and user-space tools. iSCSI, iSER, and FCoE target drivers use only user-space daemon and tools (i.e. they are just user-space applications. They don't need any kernel support). tgt can emulate the following device types: - SBC: a virtual disk drive that can use a file to store the content. - SMC: a virtual media jukebox that can be controlled by the "mtx" tool (partially functional). - MMC: a virtual DVD drive that can read DVD-ROM iso files and create burnable DVD+R. It can be combined with SMC to provide a fully operational DVD jukebox. - SSC: a virtual tape device (aka VTL) that can use a file to store the content (in progress). - OSD: a virtual object-based storage device that can use a file to store the content (in progress). The code is under the GNU General Public License version 2. Preparation ------------- Target drivers have their own ways to build, configure, etc. So find an appropriate documentation in the doc directory. Developer Notes ------------- The central resource for tgt development is the mailing list (firstname.lastname@example.org). First, please read the following documents (in short, follow Linux kernel development rules): http://lxr.linux.no/source/Documentation/CodingStyle http://lxr.linux.no/source/Documentation/SubmittingPatches Then, check your patches with the patch style checker prior to submission (scripts/checkpatch.pl) like the following example. fujita@arbre:~/git/tgt$ ./scripts/checkpatch.pl ~/0001-add-bidi-support.patch Your patch has no obvious style problems and is ready for submission.
