sdparm 1.08

An Open Source utility that helps users to modifies the parameters of any SCSI device
This handy command-line utility can be used by Linux users to collect and setup SCSI (Small Computer System Interface) mode page fields on storage devices. It features support for several SCSI vendor-specific and transport mode pages.

The sdparm utility can also decode VPD (Vital Product Data) pages, as well as to send various simple SCSI commands. The application was originally designed for Linux, but it was later ported to FreeBSD, Tru64, Solaris, and Microsoft Windows.

sdparm features several commands, which, for example, allow users to view the number of blocks, as well as the block capacity and length, to stop the medium and ejects it, to load the medium, to view if the medium is ready for IO, to view power condition information, to spin up and down the medium, and much more.
