zfcp HBA API library

This page is the 'homepage' of the Linux on System z lib-zfcp-hbaapi "zfcp HBA API library" package. (HBA is short for "Host Bus Adapter".)


zfcp HBA API library, Version 2, is part of an implementation of FC-HBA for the ZFCP device driver to be used with the Linux on System z distributions based on the "Development stream".

Note: Version 2.0 is a complete re-implementation:

  • zfcp HBA API Version 2 works only with the "Development stream"; Version 1 works with older streams.
  • Version 1 of lib-zfcp-hbaapi did not have a shared version of the library; libzfcphbaapi was linked statically against the san_disc tool. With Version 2, the shared version of the library is available again.
  • The device file for the communication with the zfcp kernel module is not needed any more. The only interfaces utilized now are the sysfs and the generic scsi devices.
