Abstract Preview

The host-base storage portion of the Storage Management Technical Specification defines management profiles for autonomous, component and abstract profiles for management of host-based storage devices. The autonomous profiles describe the management of a stand-alone host-based storage entity. The component profiles describe management of aspects of host-based storage entities that may be used by other autonomous profiles. Finally, this section describes abstract profiles that may be used as a basis for creating additional Host-based autonomous profiles.
This version of the Host-based Storage portion of the Storage Management Technical Specification includes autonomous profiles:

  • "The Host Discovered Resources Profile
    This profile defines the model for the storage devices presented to an operating system running on a host
    computer system. In addition, this profile describes the map of storage associated to a host-computer system
    that a client application can discover.
  • "The Fibre Channel HBA Profile
    This profile defines the model and functions of a Fibre Channel HBA that exports block storage to a host
    computer system from a SAN device (Fibre Channel switch, array, tape library, etc.).
  • iSCSI Initiator Profile
    This profile defines the model and functions necessary to manage an iSCSI initiator.
    Component profiles used by autonomous profiles to describe aspects of host-based storage elements
    and services. The component profiles defined in this version of the specification include:
  • Host Hardware RAID Controller Profile
    This profile defines the model and functions of a host-based RAID controller that exports block storage to a
    host computer system from locally attached storage devices (internal hard drives, JBODs, etc.)
  • Storage HBA Profile
    This profile defines the model and functions of a SAS, SATA, SPI, or Fibre Channel HBA that exports storage
    to a host computer system from a SAN device (Fibre Channel switch, array, tape library, etc.).
  • Disk Partition Profile
    The Disk Partition profile models partition (or slice) configuration services provided by operating systems on
    some platforms.
  • SB Multipath Management Profile
    The SB Multipath Management Profile models paths (connections between host controllers and device ports)
    for environments supporting the SB (Single Byte) command protocol.
  • SCSI Multipath Management Profile
    The SCSI Multipath Management profile models paths (connections between host controllers, device ports,
    and logical units) for environments supporting the SCSI command protocol.
