srpt(4D)

Name

srpt - SCSI RDMA Protocol Target Driver for Infiniband (IB)

Description

The srpt kernel pseudo device driver is an IB Architecture-compliant implementation of the target side of the SCSI RDMA Protocol (SRP). SRP accelerates the SCSI protocol by mapping SCSI data transfer phases to RDMA operations using InfiniBand as the underlying transport.

SRP target services are enabled and disabled through smf(7), using the FMRI svc:/system/ibsrp/target.

When enabled, srpt enumerates each IB Host Channel Adapter (HCA) on the system and registers each one as a SCSI target using the SCSI Target Mode Framework (STMF).
