Python SCSI generic library

Project description



This is a small Python extension which sends arbitrary commands to SCSI devices, via the Linux SCSI Generic driver, which provides the SG_IO ioctl for this purpose.

Basically, the module includes two methods, read and write, which allow you to issue commands to SCSI devices and read and write accompanying data. If an OS error occurs, the OSError exception will be raised, while if a SCSI error occurs, the py_sg.SCSIError exception will be raised.
