Welcome to HWraid for GNU/Linux


2008/08/26 -- New available packages: megamgr (access MegaRAID BIOS from Linux), dellmgr (same as megamgr, but Dell specific) and 3Ware 3DM2 (web interface for all 3Ware cards).

2008/08/25 -- I just finished to build all packages and create the Debian repository. All softwares are now available for Etch amd64/i386 !

2008/08/25 -- The website has just started up. 3ware page is nearly finished and all kind of LSI cards have been listed.
We are working hard to fill the wiki.

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.

Enjoy!
The HWraid Team
