I've been tasked with porting existing Linux functionality to our HP-UX client. A previous question, passthru devices, was answered quickly so I thought I'd ask another.
I've been pouring over the web and HP-UX documentation, but have been unable to determine if what the Linux client is doing is possible on HP-UX. Scenario:
Multiple scsi commands can be issued to read from the SCSI attached device, and I need to guarantee that the read order of the packets returned is sequential, regardless of order returned.
On Linux, there is an ioctl() call
ioctl(fd, SG_SET_FORCE_PACK_ID, &one)
that according to /usr/include/scsi/sg.h file does:
"When SG_SET_FORCE_PACK_ID set to 1, pack_id is input to read() which tries to fetch a packet with a matching
pack_id, waits, or returns EAGAIN. If pack_id is -1 then read oldest waiting. When ...FORCE_PACK_ID set to 0 then
pack_id ignored by read() and oldest readable fetched."
Is there something similar within HP-UX?
