README

The aoetools are programs that assist in using ATA over Ethernet on
systems with version 2.6 Linux kernels.

Systems running 2.4 Linux kernels do not need and should not install
the aoetools. The aoe driver for 2.4 kernels is self sufficient.

--------------------------------------------------------------------
AOE DRIVER COMPATIBILITY

ATA over Ethernet (AoE) devices have a shelf address and a slot
address. The aoe driver used to support only 10 slots per shelf
address. The 2.6.14 kernel contains an aoe driver that supports up
to 16 slots per shelf address. This change means that ...

1. It's easy to use the aoetools that come bundled with the aoe
driver at the Coraid website.

2. It's easy to use aoetools-8 or later with kernels 2.6.14 or
later.

3. It's easy to use other combinations as long as you read the
information in the devnodes.txt file here.
--------------------------------------------------------------------


If you need to configure the software, look at the variables at the
top of the Makefile. The defaults should work for most people. When
using the defaults there's only one step to configure and install the
aoetools software and documentation:

make install

You'll need sufficient permissions to install in the default locations
if you haven't overridden them with your own locations.

Here is a brief list of the tools. Please see the man pages for
further details.

aoe-discover trigger discovery of ATA over Ethernet devices
aoe-interfaces restrict network interfaces used for AoE
aoe-mkdevs create character and block device files
aoe-mkshelf create block device files for one shelf address
aoe-revalidate ask the aoe driver to update its state for a device
aoe-stat print status information for AoE devices
aoeping simple userland communication with AoE devices
