Mapping defines how Mayastor volume will be accessed from the SAN clients. Mayastor being truly unified and network agnostic supports same volume to be mapped over iSCSI, Fibre-Channel or NVMeoF network for block storage service. File system volumes can be shared using NFS (ver 3 or 4) , SMB, AFP.
The following mapping types are supported and is specified using controller option of CLI or from the GUI.
|iscsi||Any network interface recognized by kernel. More control over specific network by specifying iSCSI portal tag and name.|
|fcn||Selects the fibre channel target port as specified by the instance number n|
|nvmet-rdma||Any RDMA transport registered with the kernel. Typically they can be Infiniband, iWARP, or ROCE|
|nvmet-fc||Uses the NVMeoF transport provider over Fibre-Channel|
|nvmet-tcp||This uses standard TCP network interface just like iSCSI|
