Mona,
The term was mislabeled as a result of an error in the 07-424 proposal. 
That proposal corrected the state machine argument by changing the name of 
the argument from  'Requested Offset Xfer_Rdy state machine argument' to 
the 'Requested Write Data Length Xfer_Rdy state machine argument'. The 
error was that the term 'requested' should also have been deleted. The 
correct name should have been 'Write Data Length Xfer_Rdy state machine 
argument'. 
Rob,
Do you consider that editorial or will it take a proposal to delete the 
offending word?
Bye for now,
George Penokie

SAS Initiator XFER_RDY frame handling
Hi All,
Please refer to the last line of of Section 9.2.6.2.3.3.1 (sas2r13, 
Page#466)
--------------------------------
c) set the Previous Write Data Length state machine variable to the 
Requested Write Data Length
Xfer_Rdy state machine argument.
--------------------------------
I am not able to find the defination of Requested Write Data Length 
Xfer_Rdy state machine ardument. Is this the 'write data length' refered 
in bullet (e) of second last para in section 9.2.6.2.2.3(pasted below) 
-------------------------------- second last para in section 9.2.6.2.2.3, 
Page#460
If this state machine receives an ACK Transmitted confirmation for an 
XFER_RDY frame, then this state
machine shall send an XFER_RDY Arrived message to ST_ITS state machine 
specified by the tag. The
message shall include the following Xfer_Rdy arguments:
a) retry data frames;
b) retransmit bit;
c) target port transfer tag;
d) requested offset; and
e) write data length
-------------------------------- second last para in section 9.2.6.2.2.3
Please Suggest.
Thanks and best Regards
Mona
