What are these dvices? /dev/cciss


Hi,

I am checking the disk system and got the following result.

/dev/cciss/c0d0p2 / 10321048 783976 9012792 9%
/dev/cciss/c0d0p1 /boot 75041 13206 57960 19%

What are these devices /dev/cciss ? Are these raid devices or san?

thanks in advance.

Usually, they are block devices created by HP Smart Array RAID controller. The name c0d0p1 stats for controller 0, device 0, partition 1 (and so on).
