iscsid - Open-iSCSI daemon SYNOPSIS
The iscsid implements the control path of iSCSI protocol, plus some management facilities. For example, the daemon could be configured to automatically re-start discovery at startup, based on the contents of persistent iSCSI database. OPTIONS
[-c|--config=]config-file Read configuration from config-file rather than the default /etc/iscsi/iscsid.conf file. [-i|--initiatorname=]iname-file Read initiator name from iname-file rather than the default /etc/iscsi/initiatorname.iscsi file. [-f|--foreground] run iscsid in the foreground. [-d|--debug=]debug_level print debugging information. Valid values for debug_level are 0 to 8. [-u|--uid=]uid run under user ID uid (default is the current user ID) [-g|--gid=]gid run under user group ID gid (default is the current user group ID). [-n|--no-pid-file] do not write a process ID file. [-p|--pid=]pid-file write process ID to pid-file rather than the default /var/run/ [-h|--help] display this help and exit [-v|--version] display version and exit. FILES
/etc/iscsi/iscsid.conf The configuration file read by iscsid and iscsiadm on startup. /etc/iscsi/initiatorname.iscsi The file containing the iSCSI initiatorname and initiatoralias read by iscsid and iscsiadm on startup. /etc/iscsi/nodes Open-iSCSI persistent configuration database SEE ALSO

iscsi -- iSCSI initiator SYNOPSIS
To compile this driver into the kernel, place the following line in the kernel configuration file: device iscsi Alternatively, to load the driver as a module at boot time, place the following line in loader.conf(5): iscsi_load="YES" DESCRIPTION
The iscsi subsystem provides the kernel component of an iSCSI initiator. The initiator is the iSCSI client, which connects to an iSCSI tar- get, providing local access to a remote block device. The userland component is provided by iscsid(8) and both the kernel and userland are configured using iscsictl(8). The iscsi subsystem is responsible for implementing the "Full Feature Phase" of the iSCSI protocol. SYSCTL VARIABLES
The following variables are available as both sysctl(8) variables and loader(8) tunables: kern.iscsi.ping_timeout The number of seconds to wait for the target to respond to a NOP-Out PDU. In the event that there is no response within that time the session gets forcibly restarted. kern.iscsi.iscsid_timeout The number of seconds to wait for ctld(8) to establish a session. After that time iscsi will abort and retry. kern.iscsi.login_timeout The number of seconds to wait for a login attempt to succeed. After that time iscsi will abort and retry. kern.iscsi.maxtags The maximum number of outstanding IO requests. kern.iscsi.fail_on_disconnection Controls the behavior after an iSCSI connection has been dropped due to network problems. When set to 1, a dropped connection causes the iSCSI device nodes to be destroyed. After reconnecting, they will be created again. By default, the device nodes are left intact. While the connection is down all input/output operations are suspended, to be retried after the connection is reestablished. SEE ALSO
