SCSI sniffer for linux (similar to BusHound?)

Red Hat 8
adeptec scsi card
DLT SCSI tape drive

I am developing scripts which use lower layer SCSI commands and am getting weird results. I can't see into the lower layered stuff but would like to see what actual bytes are being sent & replies.

Bus Hound does similar thing for windows

Any ideas?

All devices communicate via their device file. Basically these act like common files, so you can just as well read device file with cat, head, tail and other tools.

You could write some script or application that sends/reads directly to device files (for SCSI in your case) with some very basic commands, to check how the device reacts to your input.
