Native iSCSI kernel stack


Project Status: Complete

FreeBSD Developer: Edward Tomasz Napierala

This project delivered a native in-kernel iSCSI stack (both target and initiator) for the increasingly popular block storage protocol. There were a number of existing iSCSI implementations that support FreeBSD, but the project lacked a high performance and reliable in-kernel target. The iSCSI stack was first available in FreeBSD 10.0. Additional optimization and hardware offload support will follow in subsequent releases.

This project was completed in early 2014.
