How to get info about an scsi disk?

Hi All!

I need some stuff to get information about scsi disks, like hdparm for IDE devices. Does anyone know something like this?

Your SCSI controller will usually give you this information.

Generally this is accessed by pressing a special key-combination at boot time - Either read its manual, look up the model on hte web, or watch those early messages from the BIOS as your computer boots - Adaptec SCSI controllers usually tell you what key combination to press to be able to get /see / set options for the connected SCSI devices Eg Bus speed, bus termination, DMA options etc.

cat /proc/scsi/scsi
will list all drives, their model numbers, and their scsi id.
What information exactly are you looking for?
Did you know hdparm does work just the same for scsi as for ide devices?
