Paper Abstract

Generally speaking, the iSCSI initiator function can be fulfilled in about 3 different ways, they are software iSCSI for various OSs (operating systems), software iSCSI with TCP/IP offload engine (TOE) and hardware iSCSI with TCP/IP offloading, and the third one can be regarded as an iSCSI HBA (Host Bus Adapter). Based upon Intelligent I/O (I2O) Architecture Specification and Intel(R) IQ80321 I/O processor evaluation board (PEB), a prototype of an iSCSI HBA implementation is presented in this paper. An OSM (OS Service Module) design introduction under Linux OS is put forward, and an embedded Linux DDM (Device Driver Module) development is also explained. By comparing with both the Intel(R) PRO 1000T IP storage NIC and Microsoft iSCSI Initiator version 1.06, some testing analysis of this iSCSI HBA in the 100/1000Gbps Ethernet network circumstance are given in the end.
