SCSI_MODE_SENSE(9) SCSI mid layer SCSI_MODE_SENSE(9)NAME
scsi_mode_sense - issue a mode sense, falling back from 10 to six bytes if necessary.
int scsi_mode_sense(struct scsi_device * sdev, int dbd, int modepage, unsigned char * buffer, int len, int timeout, int retries,
struct scsi_mode_data * data, struct scsi_sense_hdr * sshdr);
SCSI device to be queried
set if mode sense will allow block descriptors to be returned
mode page being requested
request buffer (may not be smaller than eight bytes)
length of request buffer.
number of retries before failing
returns a structure abstracting the mode header data
place to put sense data (or NULL if no sense to be collected). must be SCSI_SENSE_BUFFERSIZE big.
Returns zero if unsuccessful, or the header offset (either 4 or 8 depending on whether a six or ten byte command was issued) if successful.

scsi_arq_status - SCSI auto request sense structure
Solaris DDI specific (Solaris DDI)
When auto request sense has been enabled using scsi_ifsetcap(9F) and the "auto-rqsense" capability, the target driver must allocate a sta-
tus area in the SCSI packet structure for the auto request sense structure (see scsi_pkt(9S)). In the event of a check condition, the
transport layer automatically executes a request sense command. This check ensures that the request sense information does not get lost.
The auto request sense structure supplies the SCSI status of the original command, the transport information pertaining to the request
sense command, and the request sense data.
struct scsi_status sts_status; /* SCSI status */
struct scsi_status sts_rqpkt_status; /* SCSI status of
request sense cmd */
uchar_t sts_rqpkt_reason; /* reason completion */
uchar_t sts_rqpkt_resid; /* residue */
uint_t sts_rqpkt_state; /* state of command */
uint_t sts_rqpkt_statistics;/* statistics */
struct scsi_extended_sense sts_sensedata; /* actual sense data */
sts_status is the SCSI status of the original command. If the status indicates a check condition, the transport layer might have performed
an auto request sense command.
sts_rqpkt_status is the SCSI status of the request sense command. sts_rqpkt_reason is the completion reason of the request sense command.
If the reason is not CMD_CMPLT, then the request sense command did not complete normally.
sts_rqpkt_resid is the residual count of the data transfer and indicates the number of data bytes that have not been transferred. The auto
request sense command requests SENSE_LENGTH bytes.
sts_rqpkt_state has bit positions representing the five most important statuses that a SCSI command can go obtain.
sts_rqpkt_statistics maintains transport-related statistics of the request sense command.
sts_sensedata contains the actual sense data if the request sense command completed normally.
