Information Technology – SCSI Architecture Model - 5 (SAM-5)

The set of Small Computer System Interface (SCSI) standards consists of this standard and the SCSI implementation standards described in 4.2. This standard defines a reference model that specifies common behaviors for SCSI devices, and an abstract structure that is generic to all SCSI I/O system implementations.
The set of SCSI standards specifies the interfaces, functions, and operations necessary to ensure interoperability between conforming SCSI implementations. This standard is a functional description. Conforming implementations may employ any design technique that does not violate interoperability.
The following concepts from previous versions of this standard are made obsolete by this standard:
a) support for the SPI-5 SCSI transport protocol;
b) Contingent Allegiance;
c) the TARGET RESET task management function;
d) basic task management model;
e) untagged tasks; and
f) linked command function.
