ISCSI_INITIATOR(4)     FreeBSD Kernel Interfaces Manual     ISCSI_INITIATOR(4)

NAME
     iscsi_initiator - kernel driver for the iSCSI protocol

SYNOPSIS
     To compile this driver into the kernel, place the following lines in your
     kernel configuration file:

           device iscsi_initiator

     Alternatively, to load the driver as a module at boot time, place the
     following line in loader.conf(5):

           iscsi_initiator_load="YES"

DESCRIPTION
     The iscsi_initiator implements the kernel side of the Internet SCSI
     (iSCSI) network protocol standard.  The userland companion is
     iscontrol(8), and permits access to remote virtual SCSI devices via
     cam(4).

SYSCTL VARIABLES
     debug.iscsi_initiator      set the debug-level, 0 means no debugging, 9
                                for maximum.

     net.iscsi.isid             the initiator part of the Session Identifier.

     The following are informative only:

     net.iscsi.driver_version   the current version of the driver.

     net.iscsi.sessions         the number of current active sessions.

     net.iscsi.n.targetname     the target name of session n.

     net.iscsi.n.targedaddress  the IP address of the target of session n.

     net.iscsi.n.stats          statistics for session n

     net.iscsi.n.pid            the process id of the userland side of session
                                n, see iscontrol(8).

FILES
     The iscsi_initiator driver creates the following:

     /dev/iscsi          used to create new sessions.
     /dev/iscsi%d        for each new session.
