StorageProtocolFamily

This page contains links to various protocols used for block storage and backups.

These protocols are often used in Storage Area Networks (["SAN"]).

Block Protocols

  • ["SCSI"]: ["Small Computer System Interface"]: A protocol normally used to attach devices such as disk drives, scanners, tape drives etc to a computer. Considered being more high-end and superior to ["ATA"]. Wireshark supports dissection of ["SCSI"] over FibreChannel, ["iSCSI"], ["NDMP"] and ["HyperSCSI"]

  • ["ATA"]: ["AT Attachment"]: A protocol used mainly to talk to IDE hard disks on desktop and laptop PCs. Wireshark supports dissection of ["ATA"] over ["AOE"]

Transports

Fibre Channel Family

  • FibreChannel: A low-latency interconnect used to connect FC/SCSI devices to hosts in a FibreChannel ["SAN"]. Expensive but provides high performance. --XXX all other fibrechannel protocols we support to be added as well

IP Storage Family

  • ["iSCSI"]: A protocol to transport ["SCSI"] ontop of TCP/IP.
  • ["iSNS"]: ["Internet Storage Name Server"]: A name server (and more) similar to the FibreChannel name server.

  • ["FCIP"]: ["Fibre Channel Over IP"]: A protocol to transport FibreChannel over ["IP"].

  • ["iFCP"]: ["Internet Fibre Channel Protocol"]: Another protocol to transport FibreChannel over ["TCP"]/["IP"].

  • ["NBD"]: ["Network Block Device"]: A simple block protocol for Linux.

Ethernet Storage Family

  • ["HyperSCSI"]: A protocol to transport ["SCSI"] over ["Ethernet"].
  • ["AOE"]: ["ATA Over Ethernet"]: A protocol to transport ["ATA"] over ["Ethernet"].

Backup protocols

  • ["NDMP"]: ["Network Data Management Protocol"]: A protocol to manage backups over an ["IP"] network.
