scsi_satl - Man Page

check SCSI to ATA Translation (SAT) device support


scsi_satl [--help] [--log] [--quiet] [--verbose] DEVICE


This bash shell script calls several SCSI commands on the given DEVICE that is assumed to be an ATA device behind a SCSI to ATA Translation (SAT) layer (SATL). The results of each test and a pass/fail count are output.


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

-h,  --help

print out the usage message then exit.

-L,  --log

the output to stderr (from each SCSI command executed) is appended to a file called 'scsi_satl.err' in the current working directory.

-q,  --quiet

the amount of output is reduced and typically only the pass/fail count is output.

-v,  --verbose

increase level or verbosity.

Exit Status

The exit status of this script is the number of "bad" errors found. So an exit status of 0 means all mandatory SCSI commands worked as expected.
