To allow the caller to put the status information for the current or previous write operation into a structure that is defined in the /usr/include/sys/tmscsi.h file.
This operation returns information about the last write operation. Because a nonblocking write operation might still be running, you must ensure that the status information applies to a particular write operation. The tm_get_stat structure in the /usr/include/sys/tmscsi.h file is used to indicate the status, as follows:
SC_BUSY_STATUS Write operation in progress SC_GOOD_STATUS Writeoperation completed successfully SC_CHECK_CONDITION Write operation failed
Note: The tm_get_stat structure works only for the initiator device.
