NAME

     iscsi_initiator - kernel driver for the iSCSI protocol

SYNOPSIS

     To compile this driver into the kernel, place the following lines in your
     kernel configuration file:

           device iscsi_initiator

     Alternatively, to load the driver as a module at boot time, place the
     following line in loader.conf(5):

           iscsi_initiator_load="YES"

DESCRIPTION

     The iscsi_initiator implements the kernel side of the Internet SCSI
     (iSCSI) network protocol standard, the user land companion is
     iscontrol(8), and permits access to remote virtual SCSI devices via
     cam(4).

SYSCTL VARIABLES

     debug.iscsi_initiator     set the debug-level, 0 means no debugging, 9
                               for maximum.

     net.iscsi.isid            the initiator part of the Session Identifier.

     the following are informative only:

     net.iscsi.driver_version  the current version of the driver.

     net.iscsi.sessions        the number of current active sessions.

     net.iscsi.n.targetname    is the targe name of session n.

     net.iscsi.n.targeaddress  is the IP address of the target of session n.

     net.iscsi.n.stats         are some statistics for session

     net.iscsi.n.pid           is the process id of the userland side of
                               session n, see iscontrol(8).

FILES

     The iscsi_initiator driver creates the following:

     /dev/iscsi      used to create new sessions.
     /dev/iscsi%d    for each new session.
