NetBSD 6.1.5 - man page for iscsid (netbsd section 8)

     iscsid -- interface to kernel iSCSI driver

     iscsid [-n] [-d lvl]

     The iSCSI initiator runs as a kernel driver, and provides access to iSCSI targets running
     across a network using the iSCSI protocol, RFC 3720.  The iscsid utility itself interfaces
     to the kernel iSCSI driver, and also communicates, using isns(3), with the iSCSI name ser-
     vice running on other hosts to locate services and iSCSI instances.  In normal operation,
     iscsid is a standard daemon, and will detach from the controlling terminal using daemon(3)
     and then loops, reading requests, processing them, and sending responses.	Communication
     takes place over a Unix domain socket.  iscsid exits on receiving a terminate message, (no
     response to one that is sent to the kernel), or when an error occurs reading from or writing
     to the socket.

     The -d flag increases the debug level to lvl.  Any level above 0 causes iscsid to remain in
     the foreground, and increases the amount of debug output.	The -n flag makes the daemon sin-

     It is envisaged that user-level communication take place with iscsid using the iscsictl(8)
     utility, rather than directly over its communication socket.  An example of setting up the
     in-kernel iSCSI initiator is shown in iscsictl(8).

     The iscsid utility appeared in NetBSD 6.0.

     Alistair Crooks <agc@NetBSD.org> wrote this manual page.  The iscsid utility was contributed
     by Wasabi Systems, Inc.
