arcmsr — Areca RAID Controller driver
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"
The arcmsr driver provides support for the Areca ARC-11xx, ARC-12xx, ARC-13xx, ARC-16xx and ARC-18xx series of SAS and SATA 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.
The arcmsr driver supports the following cards: • ARC-1110 • ARC-1120 • ARC-1130 • ARC-1160 • ARC-1170 • ARC-1110ML • ARC-1120ML • ARC-1130ML • ARC-1160ML • ARC-1200 • ARC-1201 • ARC-1203 • ARC-1210 • ARC-1212 • ARC-1213 • ARC-1214 • ARC-1216 • ARC-1220 • ARC-1222 • ARC-1223 • ARC-1224 • ARC-1226 • ARC-1230 • ARC-1231 • ARC-1260 • ARC-1261 • ARC-1270 • ARC-1280 • ARC-1210ML • ARC-1220ML • ARC-1231ML • ARC-1261ML • ARC-1280ML • ARC-1380 • ARC-1381 • ARC-1680 • ARC-1681 • ARC-1880 • ARC-1882 • ARC-1883 • ARC-1884

The arcmsr driver first appeared in FreeBSD 5.4.
The driver was written by Erich Chen <firstname.lastname@example.org>.
The driver has been tested on i386 and amd64. It likely requires additional work to function on big-endian architectures.
