vblade, vbladed - export data via ATA over Ethernet SYNOPSIS
vblade [ -m mac[,mac...] ] shelf slot netif filename DESCRIPTION
The vblade command starts a process that uses raw sockets to perform ATA over Ethernet, acting like a virtual EtherDrive (R) blade. The vbladed script can be used to daemonize the vblade process, detaching it from your terminal and sending its output to the system logs. Arguments shelf This should be the shelf address (major AoE address) of the AoE device to create. slot This should be the slot address (minor AoE address) of the AoE device to create. netif The name of the ethernet network interface to use for AoE communications. filename The name of the regular file or block device to export. Options -b The -b flag takes an argument, the advertised buffer count, specifying the maximum number of outstanding messages the server can queue for processing. -d The -d flag selects O_DIRECT mode for accessing the underlying block device. -s The -s flag selects O_SYNC mode for accessing the underlying block device, so all writes are committed to disk before returning to the client. -r The -r flag restricts the export of the device to be read-only. -m The -m flag takes an argument, a comma separated list of MAC addresses permitted access to the vblade. A MAC address can be speci- fied in upper or lower case, with or without colons. EXAMPLE
In this example, the root user on a host named nai exports a file named "3TB" to the LAN on eth0 using AoE shelf address 11 and slot address 1. The process runs in the foreground. Using vbladed would have resulted in the process running as a daemon in the background. nai:~# vblade 11 1 eth0 /data/3TB BUGS
Users of Jumbo frames should read the README file distributed with vblade to learn about a workaround for kernel buffering limitations. AUTHOR

ocf_heartbeat_AoEtarget - Manages ATA-over-Ethernet (AoE) target exports SYNOPSIS
AoEtarget [start | stop | monitor | reload | meta-data | validate-all] DESCRIPTION
This resource agent manages an ATA-over-Ethernet (AoE) target using vblade. It exports any block device, or file, as an AoE target using the specified Ethernet device, shelf, and slot number. SUPPORTED PARAMETERS
device The local block device (or file) to export as an AoE target. (required, string, no default) nic The local Ethernet interface to use for exporting this AoE target. (required, string, default eth0) shelf The AoE shelf number to use when exporting this target. (optional, integer, no default) slot The AoE slot number to use when exporting this target. (required, integer, no default) pid The file to record the daemon pid to. (optional, string, default /var/run/resource-agents/ binary Location of the vblade binary. (optional, string, default /usr/sbin/vblade) SUPPORTED ACTIONS
This resource agent supports the following actions (operations): start Starts the resource. Suggested minimum timeout: 15. stop Stops the resource. Suggested minimum timeout: 15. monitor Performs a detailed status check. Suggested minimum timeout: 15. Suggested interval: 10. reload Suggested minimum timeout: 15. meta-data Retrieves resource agent metadata (internal use only). Suggested minimum timeout: 5. validate-all Performs a validation of the resource configuration. Suggested minimum timeout: 15. EXAMPLE
The following is an example configuration for a AoEtarget resource using the crm(8) shell: primitive example_AoEtarget ocf:heartbeat:AoEtarget params device=string nic="eth0" slot=integer op monitor timeout="15" interval="10" depth="0" SEE ALSO AUTHOR
