provide driver-specific information for DQI
prefixprobe (char *buf, int *bytesvalid, int *probesvalid, int bufsize);
entry point routine
provides the necessary device-specific information
for user-level applications such as
ScoAdmin and the SNMP Manager client
to determine which devices are currently configured on the system.
SCSI device drivers are not coded with an
routine. Instead, they must register the information
with the SCSI configuration driver using the
routine for SCSI peripheral drivers or the
routine for SCSI host adapater drivers.
Context and synchronization
3, 3mp, 4, 4mp, 5, 5mp, 6, 6mp
Differences between versions
This routine is not used
in ODDI versions prior to version 3
because those releases did not support
the managers that use this functionality.
SVR5 DDI compatibility
DDI drivers do not use this entry point routine.
User-level applications can access the resource manager database
for information about configured drivers. See
``Resource manager database'' in HDK Technical Reference.
