What is tcm_loop..?

TCM_Loop is a Target_Core_Mod/ConfigFS fabric module that provides locally accessable virtual Linux/SCSI devices from TCM storage objects such as IBLOCK and FILEIO. It allows TCM SPC-3 and above SCSI emulation to accessed via Linux/SCSI LLD driver, and provides CDB-level SAS emulation

What type of SCSI fabric features are available with tcm_loop..?

The complete set of Target_Core_mod/ConfigFS SPC-3 logic including Persistent_Resevations and ALUA is available from the TCM_Loop Target mode emulated SAS ports.
