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 and released in FreeBSD 11.0.
