Name

fcoei - Fibre Channel Over Ethernet Initiator Mode Driver

Synopsis

fcoei@port,0

Description

The fcoei driver is a pseudo device driver which encapsulates the raw Fibre Channel frames into FCoE ethernet frames, or decapsulates FC frames from FCoE ethernet frames. The supported FC frames include extended/basic link services, common transport frames and initiator mode FCP frames.

The fcoei driver interfaces with the Sun Fibre Channel port driver, fp(4D), and the FCoE transport driver, fcoe(4D).
