Intel did a talk at plumbers http://linuxplumbersconf.org/2011/ocw/proposals/561 Shyam has talked about it at storage summit. I think they have talked about it on some lists but I did not see anything when I looked real quick. But basically right now we do not have a common way to set DCB up for all drivers. That is the question asked in that plumbers conf and Shyam's issue with the current situation. At storage summit I think we talked about maybe making some sort of new object (like a cna device) that fcoe/iscsi/net/storage drivers could attach to and export/setup dcb settings from/to. Maybe that could also be used to handle the problem where storage drivers have to talk to and/or share code with the network drivers. I do not know what was settled on at plumbers. -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "open-iscsi" group.
