Configuring SRP Devices With COMSTAR

The SCSI RDMA Protocol accelerates the SCSI protocol by mapping the SCSI data transfer phases to Infiniband (IB) Remote Direct Memory Access (RDMA) operations. As a result, an SRP initiator can read and write data from a COMSTAR SRP target at high data rates with relatively low CPU utilization.

You can set up and configure a COMSTAR SRP target and make it available over an Infiniband (IB) fabric. The SRP target is available wherever a supported IB Host Channel Adapter (HCA) is installed on the target system.

Using COMSTAR Views With SRP

The COMSTAR view facility can be used to create target groups and host groups that restrict and configure which logical units (LUs) can be accessed through each SCSI target or initiator as described in Making SCSI Logical Units Available. The eui identifier of the SRP initiator is added to a host group. The eui identifier of the SRP SCSI Target is added to a target group. The view entries for each LU then determine the particular set of LUs that each initiator can access.

How to Enable the SRP Target Service

The COMSTAR port provider for the COMSTAR SRP target is managed by the Service Management Facility (SMF). The primary SRP target service is svc:/system/ibsrp/target:default, which can be abbreviated to ibsrp/target.

The SRP package is storage/scsi-rdma/scsi-rdma-target.

  1. Become an administrator.
  2. Recursively enable the SRP target service.
    # svcadm enable -r ibsrp/target
  3. Display the SRP target service information.
    # svcs -l ibsrp/target

How to Verify SRP Target Status

  1. Become an administrator.
  2. Verify the presence of the expected SRP SCSI target on the system.
    # srptadm list-target
    Target HCA 21280001A0D0F0:
        Enabled             : true
        SRP Target Name     : eui.0021280001A0D0F0
        Operational Status  : online
