NAME

       scsi_mandat - check SCSI device support for mandatory commands

SYNOPSIS

       scsi_mandat [--help] [--log] [--quiet] [--verbose] DEVICE

DESCRIPTION

       This  bash  shell  script  calls  several  SCSI  commands  on the given DEVICE. These SCSI
       commands are considered mandatory (although  that  varies  a  little  depending  on  which
       standard/draft  the  DEVICE complies with). The results of each test and a pass/fail count
       are output.

OPTIONS

       Arguments to long options are mandatory for short options as well.

       -h, --help
              print out the usage message then exit.

       -L, --log
              the output to stderr (from each SCSI command executed) is appended to a file called
              'scsi_mandat.err' in the current working directory.

       -q, --quiet
              the amount of output is reduced and typically only the pass/fail count is output.

       -v, --verbose
              increase level or verbosity.

EXIT STATUS

       The  exit status of this script is the number of "bad" errors found.  So an exit status of
       0 means all mandatory SCSI commands worked as expected.
