     safte - SCSI Accessed Fault-Tolerant Enclosure

     safte* at scsibus?

     The safte driver provides support for monitoring the various
     environmental sensors present in SCSI enclosures using the SCSI Accessed
     Fault-Tolerant Enclosure command set.  The hardware monitor is used with
     the sysctl(8) interface.

     SAF-TE compliant devices can provide an arbitrary set of sensors from the
     following types:

	   Sensor    Units    Typical Use
	   temp	     uK	      temperature
	   fan	     RPM      fan
	   psu	     On/Off   power supply
	   doorlock  On/Off   door lock
	   alarm     On/Off   enclosure alarm

     Sensor data is updated every 10 seconds.

     An enclosure may provide environmental information using an alternative
     to the SCSI Accessed Fault-Tolerant Enclosure command set used by this
     driver.  Enclosures using the SCSI Enclosure Services command set may be
     monitored by the ses(4) driver.

     intro(4), scsibus(4), ses(4), sensorsd(8), sysctl(8)

     The safte driver first appeared in OpenBSD 3.8.

     The safte driver was written by David Gwynne <>.
