This part of ISO/IEC 24775 defines management profiles for autonomous, component and abstract profiles for management of host-based storage devices. The autonomous profiles describe the management of a stand-alone host-based storage entity. The component profiles (or subprofiles) describe management of aspects of host-based storage entities that may be used by other autonomous profiles. Finally, this standard describes abstract profiles that may be used as a basis for creating additional Host-based autonomous profiles.
This part of ISO/IEC 24775 includes autonomous profiles:
• "The Host Discovered Resources Profile
This profile defines the model for the storage devices presented to an operating system running on a host computer system. In addition, this profile describes the map of storage associated to a hostcomputer system that a client application can discover.
• "The Fibre Channel HBA Profile
This profile defines the model and functions of a Fibre Channel HBA that exports block storage to a host computer system from a SAN device (Fibre Channel switch, array, tape library, etc.).
• iSCSI Initiator Subprofile
This profile defines the model and functions necessary to manage an iSCSI initiator.
Component profiles used by autonomous profiles to describe aspects of host-based storage elements and services.The component profiles (subprofiles) defined in this standard include:
• Host Hardware RAID Controller Profile
This profile defines the model and functions of a host-based RAID controller that exports block storage to a host computer system from locally attached storage devices (internal hard drives, JBODs, etc.) Storage HBA Profile This profile defines the model and functions of a SAS, SATA, SPI, or Fibre Channel HBA that exports storage to a host computer system from a SAN device (Fibre Channel switch, array, tape library, etc.).
• Disk Partition Subprofile
The Disk Partition profile models partition (or slice) configuration services provided by operating systems on some platforms. SB Multipath Management Subprofile The SB Multipath Management Subprofile models paths (connections between host controllers and device ports) for environments supporting the SB (Single Byte) command protocol.
• SCSI Multipath Management Subprofile
The SCSI Multipath Management profile models paths (connections between host controllers, device ports, and logical units) for environments supporting the SCSI command protocol.
