ARCMSR(4)		 BSD Kernel Interfaces Manual		     ARCMSR(4)

NAME
     arcmsr — Areca SATA II 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 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.

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.
