The ATA over Ethernet Tools are intended for use in conjunction with an ATA over Ethernet (AoE) driver for a Linux 2.6 kernel, called "aoe". The tools perform simple tasks like listing available devices, triggering device discovery, and restricting the network interfaces on which AoE is performed.

Release Notes: This release adds a "aoe-sancheck" tool for diagnosing network problems. Some portability enhancements have been made to support Ubuntu systems. Files for RPM generation have been added to a new "pkg" subdirectory. The sos-Linux tool has been updated with support for upcoming aoe driver releases.
Release Notes: A workaround for a modinfo bug was added to aoe-version, allowing correct detection of the installed driver even when "aoe" appears in the current working directory.
Release Notes: POSIX shell compatibility was improved. A nuisance bug where the presence of any ./aoe would make aoe-version report the installed aoe driver version as "unknown" was fixed. The documentation was updated.
Release Notes: The aoeping tool now recognizes targets that cannot perform SMART commands. It also recognizes and reports errors for SMART commands.
Release Notes: A new coraid-update tool was added to help users safely update the firmware of Coraid appliances via AoE.
