This driver supports the following models: the Compaq 2Gb 6-Port Fibre Channel Switch Agent, StorageWorks MSA1000, StorageWorks Fibre Channel Array Controller, COMPAQ HSV110 CCL, HP HSV100 CCL, Compaq HSG80 CCL, Compaq HSG60 CCL, Emulex Simulation Device, and Compaq KGPSA-xx, PCI-Fibre Channel HBA (with adjunct driver). This driver uses SCSI, or Small Computer System Interface technology. The technology comprises set standards to physically bridge ad transmit data among computers and various peripherals. SCSIs determine commands, electrical interfaces, optical interfaces, and protocol. Hard disk drives and tape drives typically utilize this interface, although a large number of other tools (such as CD-ROM drives and scanners) also integrate this technology. SCSI also establishes sets of commands for specific kinds of peripheral devices. Theoretically, it may be employed to interface virtually any device to another, but the standard is usually deployed for practical purposes such as commercial products.
Unless you update your drivers regularly you may face hardware performance issues.
To check your drivers you should manually verify every device on your system for driver updates
SCSI is an interface that belies its complexity through its straightforward physical design. It is universal, and as such, all devices connect to SCSI buses identically. The technology is that of peripheral interface, wherein up to eight or sixteen apparatus can bridge to one bus. At least one host is required for numerous peripheral devices and hosts. SCSI variants SCSI1 and SCSI2 allow for equal error checking, From the SCSI-U160 (which is included in SCSI3), all information and commands are scrutinized for error by a CRC-32 checksum. The interface is termed ‚Äòpeer-to-peer', in that the protocol lays out communication between two hosts, a particular host and a peripheral device, and two peripheral devices. Conversely, many peripheral devices are restricted in format as SCSI targets and unable to be SCSI initiators (which start SCSI transmissions). Thus, communication between one peripheral device to another is rare, though possible, in many applications for SCSI. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and Compaq HSG60 CCL errors before installing any driver updates.
