Data FIFO threshold selection. The Sequencer is programmable and uses its own microcode program which is downloaded to AIC by the host at initialization. A value of 0x8a enables it for units 1, 3, and 7.

Are you new to LinuxQuestions. SCB paging takes advantage adapptec the fact that devices usually disconnect from the SCSI bus for long periods of time without talking to the controller.

Performance and feature sets vary throughout the aic7xxx product line. Below is a description of the threshold values for SCSI reads and writes. Join our community today! The time now is In general, the SCSI system and this driver will automatically choose the best combination of these features to suit the target devices used.

The default number of tags handled by the Sequencer in this mode is The value assigned to this option should be a bitmap of all units where target mode is desired. The SCBs for disconnected transactions are only of use to the controller when the transfer is resumed. Using the SCBs in a straight forward manner would only allow the driver to handle as many concurrent transactions as there are physical SCBs.


For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. A method for configuring dual role mode should be provided.

All times are GMT Since the local SCB space serves as a cache for disconnected transactions, the more SCB space available, the less host bus traffic consumed saving and restoring SCB data.

This confuses the drive and hangs the bus. Tagged Queuing is not supported in target mode. It must be called exactly once for a specified Host Adapter. If this happens the HIM attempts to conduct the configuration space Read access. Multiplexed Twin Channel Device – One controller servicing two busses.

Gigabyte Adaptec 7880 Ultra Wide SCSI Driver 3.03 for Win 98, 95, NT

Although the Ultra2 and Ultra products have sufficient instruction ram space to support both the initiator and target roles concurrently, this configuration is disabled in favor of allowing the target role to respond on multiple target ids.

AIC p debian driver. For systems that store non-volatile settings in a system specific manner rather than a serial eeprom directly connected to the aic7xxx controller, the BIOS must be enabled for the driver to access this information. The solution to this problem is SCB Paginga concept similar to memory paging.


Find More Posts by circus. Driver features include support for twin and wide busses, fast, ultra or ultra2 synchronous transfers depending on controller type, tagged queueing, SCB paging, and target mode.

To fully utilize the SCSI bus and the devices on it, requires much more concurrency. Most modern motherboards perform the initialization correctly and work fine with this option enabled.

They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things aaptec your own. Reselection in target mode fails to function correctly on all high voltage differential boards as shipped by Adaptec. For example, a value of 0x25, would enable target mode on units 0, 2, and 5.
