Internet Small Computer Systems Interface (iSCSI) is a Small Computer
Systems Interface (SCSI) transport protocol designed to run on top of
TCP.  The iSCSI session abstraction is equivalent to the classic
SCSI "I_T nexus", which represents the logical relationship
between an Initiator and a Target (I and T) required in order to
communicate via the SCSI family of protocols.  The iSCSI session
provides an ordered command delivery from the SCSI initiator to
the SCSI target.  This document goes into the design
considerations that led to the iSCSI session model as it is
defined today, relates the SCSI command ordering features
defined in T10 specifications to the iSCSI concepts, and finally
provides guidance to system designers on how true command
ordering solutions can be built based on iSCSI.
