ARCMSR(4)	       FreeBSD Kernel Interfaces Manual		     ARCMSR(4)

NAME
     arcmsr -- Areca SATA II RAID Controller driver

SYNOPSIS
     device arcmsr
     device pci
     device scbus
     device da

DESCRIPTION
     The arcmsr	driver provides	support	for the	Areca ARC-11xx and ARC-12xx
     series of SATA II 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 inser-
     tion/removal, automatic failover and rebuild, and SMART are also sup-
     ported.  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	avail-
     able from Areca.

HARDWARE
     The arcmsr	driver supports	the following cards:

     +o	 ARC-1110
     +o	 ARC-1120
     +o	 ARC-1130
     +o	 ARC-1160
     +o	 ARC-1130-ML
     +o	 ARC-1160-ML
     +o	 ARC-1210
     +o	 ARC-1220
     +o	 ARC-1230
     +o	 ARC-1260
     +o	 ARC-1230-ML
     +o	 ARC-1260-ML

HISTORY
     The arcmsr	driver first appeared in FreeBSD 5.4.

AUTHORS
     The driver	was written by Erich Chen <erich@areca.com.tw>.

BUGS
     The driver	has been tested	on i386	and amd64.  It likely requires addi-
     tional work to function on	big-endian architectures.
