how to scan a new LUN in Linux?


Could you please tell me, how we can scan a new LUN in Linux? And how can we check it's size and add it to linux box? After adding it how can we verify that the new LUN has been added?

Thanks !!

Would it be scan lun command which I will be using?

Partition size is 10GB

Would there be different commands, if the size is 100MB or 100 GB or 100TB?
