SCSI_READCAP(8)			   SG3_UTILS		       SCSI_READCAP(8)

NAME
       scsi_readcap - do SCSI READ CAPACITY command on disks

SYNOPSIS
       scsi_readcap [--brief] [--help] [--long]	[--verbose] DEVICE [DEVICE]*

DESCRIPTION
       This  bash  shell script	calls the sg_readcap utility on	each given DE-
       VICE. This will send a SCSI READ	CAPACITY command to each DEVICE.

       The default action of this script is to send the	10 byte	cdb  READ  CA-
       PACITY(10)  command  to each DEVICE. If a response indicates the	number
       of blocks is greater than or equal to '2**32 - 1' then the READ	CAPAC-
       ITY(16) is sent and its response	is output.

OPTIONS
       Arguments to long options are mandatory for short options as well.

       -b, --brief
	      shortens the output to two hexadecimal numbers, both prefixed by
	      '0x'.  The first number is the number of	blocks	available  and
	      the second is the	size of	each blocks in bytes (e.g. '0x12a19eb0
	      0x200'). If an error is detected '0x0 0x0'  is  output  and  the
	      script continues if there	are more DEVICEs.

       -h, --help
	      print out	the usage message then exit.

       -l, --long
	      the  default  is to send the READ	CAPACITY(10) command (i.e. the
	      10 byte cdb variant). When this option is	given the READ	CAPAC-
	      ITY(16) command is sent. The latter command yields more informa-
	      tion in its response.

       -v, --verbose
	      increase level or	verbosity.

EXIT STATUS
       The exit	status of this script is 0 when	it  is	successful.  Otherwise
       the  exit status	is that	of the last sg_readcap utility called. See the
       sg3_utils(8) man	page.
