ISCSID(8)		FreeBSD	System Manager's Manual		     ISCSID(8)

NAME
     iscsid -- iSCSI initiator daemon

SYNOPSIS
     iscsid [-P	pidfile] [-d] [-l loglevel] [-m	maxproc] [-t seconds]

DESCRIPTION
     The iscsid	daemon is responsible for performing the Login Phase of	iSCSI
     connections, as well as performing	SendTargets discovery.

     Upon startup, the iscsid daemon opens the iSCSI initiator device file and
     waits for kernel requests.	 It doesn't use	any configuration file;	all
     the information it	needs it gets from the kernel.

     When the iscsid damon is not running, already established iSCSI connec-
     tions continue to work.  However, establishing new	connections, or	recov-
     ering existing ones in case of connection error, is not possible.

     The following options are available:

     -P	pidfile	 Specify alternative location of a file	where main process PID
		 will be stored.  The default location is /var/run/iscsid.pid.

     -d		 Debug mode.  The server sends verbose debug output to stan-
		 dard error, and does not put itself in	the background.	 The
		 server	will also not fork and will exit after processing one
		 connection.  This option is only intended for debugging the
		 initiator.

     -l	loglevel
		 Specifies debug level.	 The default is	0.

     -m	maxproc	 Specifies limit for concurrently running child	processes han-
		 dling connections.  The default is 30.	 Setting it to 0 dis-
		 ables the limit.

     -t	seconds	 Specifies timeout for login session, after which the connec-
		 tion will be forcibly terminated.  The	default	is 60.	Set-
		 ting it to 0 disables the timeout.

FILES
     /dev/iscsi		  The iSCSI initiator device file.
     /var/run/iscsid.pid  The default location of the iscsid PID file.

EXIT STATUS
     The iscsid	utility	exits 0	on success, and	>0 if an error occurs.

HISTORY
     The iscsid	command	appeared in FreeBSD 10.0.

AUTHORS
     The iscsid	was developed by Edward	Tomasz Napierala <trasz@FreeBSD.org>
     under sponsorship from the	FreeBSD	Foundation.
