You can check the status and other things using the sas2ircu utiliity.

More details A blog post claim supermicro provide a tool to get the status out from the command line. Hardware using this driver: Tagslsimegaraidmptraid Thread Tools.

It’s the standard saa2008 expected return code. Gave up on it while dealing with higher priority stuff. I guess next time i’ll buy 3Ware or something to avoid all this misery. The commands are rather obtuse but there are plenty of sites to show you what you need to get started.

Some find it easier to use graphical tools. The first one with a RAID1 array working fine. Some tools and drivers are available from the vendor.

However LSI provide megaclia proprietary management command line utility which is rather hard limux use. The read policies indicate whether or not the controller should read sequential sectors of the logical drive when seeking data.

Command-line utilities are packaged for Debian as dpt-i2o-raidutils.
