For those interested,
At https://github.com/sahlberg/libiscsi there is now a package for
iscsi clientside library and a couple of useful
utilities, like iscsi-ls and iscsi-inq.
The library provides a fully async and nonblocking api.
For convenience, it also provides a synchronous interface for simpler
ISCSI URLs are specified as :
CHAP is supported. (unidirectional only)
Header digest is supported. (we offer None,CRC32C and accept/use
whatever the target picks)
Target initiated NOPs are not yet implemented, but should be trivial
to add if someone needs them.
I have used this library to successfully convert QEMU, SG3-UTILS and
MTX to access iscsi devices with great success.
So the API is reasonably proven to work/integrate with other utilities.
It is still early and would need a lot of enhancements. For example
the SCSI marshalling/unmarshalling could definitely
be expanded to cover a whole lot more SCSI commands and DATA blobs.
Please feel free to use, enhance and contribute.
Good Yule to all
