I want to use mdadm so I want to be able to address each disk individually. The packages comes with a python wrapper around megacli and an initscript that periodic run this wrapper to check status. It will force a single line output and will return exit code 0 if all good, or 2 if at least one thing is wrong. SMART only makes it worse.

The driver is in the main kernel as of 2.

Chip seems to be mostly found on motherboards for onboard SATA. I have also tried my motherboard esata port, but I guess it doesn’t support PMP. One of them is your eSATA port, the other one is either internal or unused the pins of the chip are not wired.

Thank you for your answer, I’ve 1068f that and my 108e is speedlight fast with partition alignment now! Linux kernel drivers 3. Wondering why these are not included, since they are officially supported by Solaris The first one with a RAID1 array working fine.


Linux and Hardware RAID: an administrator’s summary

Drive reports size as 2,2 Tb Welcome to the most active Linux Forum on the web. The price point seems really good for 16 ports. The HBA boots quite fast and needs just a couple of seconds to recognize all disks. However, I already did this for you. Please keep updating this.

I guess the drives are showing now in your BIOS? Supported natively in linux, 1086e and esxi. This change however did not seem to any difference on performance.

HighPoint HBA based 106e8 the I consider this layout to have one great advantage – in a standard tower case, it puts the components including heatsink on the upper surface of the card. It is possible to create arrays on any disk on any type of controller in the system, or to move disks from one controller to another. HighPoint HBA based on this chip: The Sil is not a port multiplier. Before reading this page, I ordered a Rocket to enable me to finally populate all the bays in my 5in3 drive cages – it seems that I have made a good choice there.

I was not able to see if these worked; too much trouble trying to deal with the driver files. Thanks a lot for sharing this nice and useful information. The packages comes with an initscript that periodic run mpt-status to check status.


Thanks again for this blog. The bid will last ’till end of month, so if you are in Europe, hurry up! Also I just found yet another one: July 2nd, At the end of aacraid section is the old information on tools available on Dell website, which may be useful for older distributions and controllers.

Quite expensive; I would recommend buying a cheaper! This is a mission critical environment hosting websites.

The packages comes with a python wrapper around megacli and an initscript that periodic run this wrapper to check status. When opening up the machine how do I know for sure which disk this is?

Pretty surprising that it is being sold for such a low price. OpenSolaris szs driver does not support that chipset yet.
