TAPEINFO(1)                                                        TAPEINFO(1)

NAME
       tapeinfo - report SCSI tape device info

SYNOPSIS
       tapeinfo -f <scsi-generic-device>

DESCRIPTION
       The  tapeinfo  command  reads various information from SCSI tape drives
       that is not generally available via  most  vendors'  tape  drivers.  It
       issues  raw commands directly to the tape drive, using either the oper-
       ating system's SCSI generic device ( e.g. /dev/sg0 on Linux, /dev/pass0
       on  FreeBSD) or the raw SCSI I/O ioctl on a tape device on some operat-
       ing systems.

       One good time to use 'tapeinfo' is immediately after a tape i/o  opera-
       tion  has  failed.  On  tape  drives that support HP's 'tapealert' API,
       'tapeinfo' will report a more exact description of what went wrong.

       Do be aware that 'tapeinfo' is not a substitute for your operating sys-
       tem's  own  'mt' or similar tape driver control program. It is intended
       to supplement, not replace, programs like 'mt' that access your operat-
       ing system's tape driver in order to report or set information.

OPTIONS
       The  first  argument,  given  following -f , is the SCSI generic device
       corresponding to your tape drive.  Consult your operating system's doc-
       umentation  for  more  information  (for example, under Linux these are
       generally start at /dev/sg0 under FreeBSD these start at /dev/pass0).

       Under FreeBSD, 'camcontrol devlist' will tell you what SCSI devices you
       have,  along  with which 'pass' device controls them. Under Linux, "cat
       /proc/scsi/scsi" will tell you what SCSI devices you have.

BUGS AND LIMITATIONS
       This program has only been tested on Linux with  a  limited  number  of
       tape drives (HP DDS4, Seagate AIT).

AVAILABILITY
       tapeinfo  is  currently  being  maintained by Robert Nelson <robertnel-
       son@users.sourceforge.net> as part of the 'mtx' suite of programs.  The
       'mtx'  home  page  is http://mtx.sourceforge.net and the actual code is
       currently   available   there   and   via   SVN   from   http://source-
       forge.net/projects/mtx.
