Title: Method and structure for handling packetized SCSI protocol data overruns in a multi-data channel host adapter

Abstract: An overrun data handling circuit in a SCSI initiator and an overrun data handling method automatically handle Packetized SCSI Protocol data overruns. A multi-data channel host adapter includes the overrun data handling circuit that automatically handles data overruns for one data context in a Packetized SCSI Protocol data stream without damaging data for other data contexts, in the data stream, for which a data overrun has not occurred.
