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

NAME
     arcmsr -- Areca RAID Controller driver

SYNOPSIS
     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"

DESCRIPTION
     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 accelera-
     tion 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.

HARDWARE
     The arcmsr	driver supports	the following cards:

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.
