Re: clearification on intent of last sentence
BArry, The intent of the draft was 2. No need for the pieces to be "in order". Julo "Barry Reinhold" <firstname.lastname@example.org> on 06/12/2000 17:46:43 Please respond to "Barry Reinhold" <email@example.com> To: Julian Satran/Haifa/IBM@IBMIL cc: Subject: clearification on intent of last sentence Julian, The description of R2T in 02 reads as follows... "An R2T MAY be answered with more than iSCSI Data-out PDU with matching Target Task Tag. If an R2T is answered with a single Data PDU the Buffer Offset in the Data PDU MUST be the same as the one specified by the R2T and the data length of the Data PDU must not exceed the Desired Data Length specified in R2T. If the R2T is answered with a sequence of Data PDUs the Buffer Offset and Length must be within the range of those specified by R2T and the last PDU should have the F bit set to 1; the Buffer Offsets and Lengths for consecutive PDUs SHOULD form a continuous range." I would like to have the intent of the last sentence verified. Interpretation 1 is: The initiator must send a sequence of PDUs such that for each PDU 1..N, the offset (O) and the length L of the "i"th PDU is as follows: O(i) = O(i-1)+ L(i-1) Interpretation 2 is: After the sequence of N PDUs have been sent they shall have formed a continuous range such that no gap exists between O(1) and 0(N). I believe that your intent is 1 but I would like you to verify that interpretation 1 is the intent of the draft.
