The fp driver is a Sun Fibre Channel nexus driver that enables Fibre Channel topology discovery, device discovery, Fibre Channel adapter port management and other capabilities through well-defined Fibre Channel adapter driver interfaces.
The fp driver requires the presence of a fabric name server in fabric and public loop topologies to discover fibre channel devices. In private loop topologies, the driver discovers devices by performing PLOGI to all valid AL_PAs, provided that devices do not participate in LIRP and LILP stages of loop initialization.
