Visual SCSI Explorer

 

Visual SCSI Explorer application runs on Windows operating system platforms and is intended for advanced SCSI device testing.

Application visualizes the host SCSI controller and device configuration as controller-device tree and properties. It is possible to rescan SCSI buses and to dynamically update the SCSI device list. Application functional interface is optimized for Media Changer, Tape Drive, Disk, and Multi-Media devices. Raw CDB feature allows user to execute any SCSI command for SCSI device of any type. Application visualizes the process of SCSI command execution, logs the command parameters, the outbound and inbound command data and parses them.

Application automates routine SCSI device test tasks by using service procedures and JScript and VBScript scripting languages. Service procedures implement the predefined sequence of SCSI commands for the simple testing tasks. The scripting helps to automate the execution of arbitrary SCSI command sequence for the complex testing tasks. Application can run multiple service procedures and scripts for different devices at the same time.

The range of the potential customers includes the next main groups.

Virtual Storage Device Emulator

 

Virtual Storage Device Emulator emulates virtual storage controller and virtual storage devices on Windows operating system platforms.

Virtual Storage Device Emulator emulates the direct access block devices and optical memory devices. Virtual Storage Device Emulator emulates the virtual storage controller device for the operating system and other software to access the virtual storage devices. The virtual storage devices are visible only on the computer the Virtual Storage Device Emulator is running on. Virtual devices store the data in the files located in local file system. Virtual devices can be configured as having either fixed or removable medium.

Virtual Storage Device Emulator provides GUI management console for managing the virtual hardware configuration. User can view and change the configuration of virtual hardware and manage virtual removable medium.

Virtual Storage Device Emulator is intended for being used in the following scenarios.

SCSI Pass Through JNI helper

 

The SCSI Pass Through JNI (SPT JNI) software package provides the SCSI Pass Through (SPT) programmatic interface for Java applications on the Windows operating system platforms. The package is free and can be redistributed to any party.

 

The package allows Java application to enumerate SCSI host bus adapters and SCSI devices, and to execute SCSI commands for the SCSI devices. Programmatic interface of the package is simple and introduces no limitation on the CDB and data structure. The maximum size of data is limited by the maximum transfer length parameter of the SCSI host bus adapter and depends on the adapter model and type. For Windows 8 and later operating system platforms the large CDB (up to 256 bytes) and bidirectional data transfer are supported. The maximum sense data length is 255 bytes. The package gives the Java application all the advantages of handling the SCSI devices at relatively low system level. The package does not depend on the type of host bus adapter and handles all types of adapters (SCSI, Fibre Channel, iSCSI, etc) in the same unified way. The package is relatively compact and requires minimum of disk space and memory.
