Welcome to HWraid for GNU/Linux


2012/01/30 -- Adaptec Storage Manager updated! At least for me, SNMPD connector looks being reliable now. Aacraid-status has been updated too, because of an ouput change in arcconf. I have also received my second donation! Thanks a lot Edmund.

2011/11/01 -- Megaclisas-status updated to release 0.7, including nagios support.

2011/09/11 -- Back to work... Adaptec Storage Manager updated to release 7.00.18781 and aacraid-status bumped to fix a bunch of issues (ie: RAID group support, like RAID10). Debian Etch and Ubuntu Karmic repository deleted, Debian WHeezy added, newer Ubuntu will come soon. Thanks for supporting me :-)

2011/09/10 -- Thanks a lot to my first donator ! I don't know if he'd like to have his name published or not, so I won't do it. Thanks again!

This website aims to be the starting point for people wondering how to use and manage and harware RAID HBAs on GNU/Linux.
There are many vendor and model of hardware controllers. Some are fully supported on Linux, some are nearly unusable.

Having a kernel driver for the card is the first thing needed. However, once it's done the sysadmin needs to be able to manage, and of course to keep in touch with the disks status to be able to replace a failed disk as soon as possible.
This aspect is really important and we will try to tell you most of all we know about opensource and proprietary tools used to report card and disks status.

Please notice the information available on this site have been provided by sysadmin on their free time in the hope it could be useful.
There's of course no warranty about all what's written or downloadable here. However we do our best to have fully verified informations.

Please use the ticket system to report us any issue and support us by clicking the "donate button" at the bottom of the page'''

Enjoy!
