    7676=== 3.1.2. My opinion about tw_cli ===
    7777
    78 tw_cli is really a good utility. It show all needed informations in just one command.[[BR]]
    79 Moreover, it show rebuild status in percent when the array is rebuilding and it's easily parsable because 3Ware filled the not relevant columns with a dash instead of let them empty. Good job !

    84843ware-status is a package I wrote by myself. It includes a python wrapper around tw_cli command and an initscript which daemonize the launch of the wrapper.[[BR]]
    85 It also handle failure detection and report it by mail and syslog. It also handle unexpected output change and reminder until the status is fine again.

    104 3DM2 is a Web applications with an embedded web servers that allow use to do the same things than with tw_cli but graphical.[[BR]]
    105 It's works fine and doesn't rely on insane dependencies like java, tomcat or something else.
    106 However it use an awfull InstallShield installer which should be avoided in any case.
