NAME

     pst — device driver for Promise Supertrak SX6000

SYNOPSIS

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

           device pst

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

           pst_load="YES"

DESCRIPTION

     This driver is for the Promise Supertrak SX6000 ATA hardware RAID controller.  It supports
     (in hardware) RAID levels 0, 1, 0+1, 3, 5 and JBOD on up to 6 ATA disk drives, including
     automatic rebuild and hotswap, and supports signalling disk status on LEDs on Promise
     Superswap disk enclosures.  The Supertrak line of controllers does not support non-disk
     devices.

HARDWARE

     The pst driver supports the Promise Supertrak SX6000 ATA hardware RAID controller.

NOTES

     The pst driver does not support manipulating the RAID from the OS, RAIDs need to be set up
     from the onboard BIOS.  However, hot swap, hot spare, and automatic rebuilds are supported
     without a reboot.

HISTORY

     The pst driver first appeared in FreeBSD 4.7.
