thanks....
i did install the system now on ar0. the dmesg output below didn't change. the df does show only one drive - ar0 - with a few slices... assuming now that i have RAID1 working is there any way to monitor disks individually? or as an array?
how can i be sure that the RAID is actually working? or get any stats?
i figured the driver for the <Intel MatrixRAID RAID1> must be iir. bit from the iir man page ther is not much about monitoring or status...


thanks...

hi ...

i have a simple RAID question(s).

this is from the dmesg of a newly installed bsd7:

ad4: 238475MB <Seagate ST3250310AS 3.AAA> at ata2-master SATA150
ad6: 238475MB <Seagate ST3250310AS 3.AAA> at ata3-master SATA150
ar0: 238472MB <Intel MatrixRAID RAID1> status: READY
ar0: disk0 READY (master) using ad4 at ata2-master
ar0: disk1 READY (mirror) using ad6 at ata3-master

from what i understand here is that if at the time of installation i install the system on ar0 that means i'd have RAID1 made out of ad4 and ad6.
right?
is there any configuration to be done?
how do i know what driver is being used? it says:
hptrr: HPT RocketRAID controller driver v1.1 (Feb 24 2008 19:59:27) .............................................
hptrr: no controller detected.'


that's it. thanks.





It is saying "ar0: 238472MB <Intel MatrixRAID RAID1> status: READY"

So assume it is onboard Intel RAID. When configuring FBSD setup, just make sure 
you're selecting the ar0 controller and partition it as you like. That is it!
