NAME

       ata_id - udev callout to read product/serial number from ATA drives

SYNOPSIS

       ata_id [--export] blockdevice

DESCRIPTION

       ata_id  is  normally  called  from  a udev rule, to provide udev with a
       unique string and additional  information  (uuid,  label)  for  an  ATA
       drive.   Udev   can   use   this  information  to  create  symlinks  in
       /dev/disk/by-id and /dev/disk/by-label to the real device node.

USAGE

       ata_id opens the blockdevice node  specified  at  the  commandline  and
       prints the information chosen by the options.

OPTIONS

       The following commandline switches are supported to specify what ata_id
       should print:

       --export
              print all values (instead of only the id)
