NAME

     arcmsr - Areca SATA II RAID Controller driver

SYNOPSIS

     To compile this driver into the kernel, place the following lines in your
     kernel configuration file:

           device pci
           device scbus
           device da
           device arcmsr

     Alternatively, to load the driver as a module at boot time, place the
     following line in loader.conf(5):

           arcmsr_load="YES"

DESCRIPTION

     The arcmsr driver provides support for the Areca ARC-11xx and ARC-12xx
     series of SATA II RAID controllers.  These controllers feature RAID-0, 1,
     3, 5, 6, and 10 and JBOD acceleration for up to 16 SATA drives.  Raid
     level and stripe level migration, online capacity expansion, hot
     insertion/removal, automatic failover and rebuild, and SMART are also
     supported.  Access to the arrays is provided via the SCSI CAM /dev/da?
     device nodes.  A management interface is also present via the
     /dev/arcmsr? device node.  Management tools for i386 and amd64 are
     available from Areca.

AUTHORS

     The driver was written by Erich Chen 〈erich@areca.com.tw〉.

BUGS

     The driver has been tested on i386 and amd64.  It likely requires
     additional work to function on big-endian architectures.
