NAME

       tgtd - The SCSI Target Daemon

SYNOPSIS

       tgtd

       tgtd [-C --control-port <INTEGER>] [-d --debug <INTEGER>]
            [-f --foregound] [-h --help] [--iscsi <...>]

DESCRIPTION

       Tgtd is a SCSI Target daemon. It can be used to provide SCSI target
       service to a network. The most common service is iSCSI but other
       services are also supported.

DEVICE TYPES

       Tgtd provides support for both emulated and passthrough of real
       devices.

               Tgtd can emulate the following types of devices:

               disk       : Normal disk device. Emulates a SCSI harddisk.
               tape       : Tape device. Emulates a SCSI tape drive.
               cd         : CD device. Emulates a SCSI DVD burner.
               changer    : Media changer. Emulate the changer device for a virtual tape library or DVD jukebox.

OPTIONS

       -d --debug <INTEGER>
           Set to non-zero value to activate additional debugging messages to
           be logged.

       -f --foreground
           Run the daemon in the foreground.

       -h --help
           Print help text to the screen.

       -C --control-port <INTEGER>
           This comamnd is used to specify the control port to use for this
           instance of tgtd. This allows to run multiple instances of TGTD on
           a host.

           TGTADM has a matching argument to control which instance to connect
           to.

       --iscsi <...>
           ISCSI specific options. See the ISCSI section below for options
           specific to this frontend.

ISCSI OPTIONS

       These parameters apply only to the iSCSI frontend.

   portal=<ip-address[:port]>
       This option is used to bind tgtd to a specific ip-address/portal and/or
       port. By default tgtd will bind to port 3260 on the wildcard address.
       The ip-address part (before the ":") can be missing to designate the
       wildcard address with a none-default port.

       Example: to bind tgtd to a specific address and port

                tgtd --iscsi portal=192.0.2.1:3260

       Example: to bind tgtd to any address but a none-default port

                tgtd --iscsi portal=:3251

   nop_interval=<integer>
       This sets the default interval for sending NOP-OUT to probe for
       connected initiators. This parameter only controls the default value
       for targets. Individual targets can be controlled using tgtadm.

       The default value is 0 which means that the feature is disabled TGTD
       will not send any NOP-OUT probes.

   nop_count=<integer>
       This sets the default value for after how many failed probes TGTD will
       consider the initiator dead and tear down the session. This parameter
       only controls the default value for targets. Individual targets can be
       controlled using tgtadm.

       The default value is 0.

       Example: send NOP-OUT every 5 seconds and abort the session after 6
       failures.

                tgtd --iscsi portal=192.0.2.1:3260,nop_interval=5,nop_count=6

ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES

   TGT_IPC_SOCKET=<path>
       When set tgtd and tgtadm will use the specified path as the IPC socket
       instead of the default '/var/run/tgtd/socket.0'
