there are actually two types of mirroring:
- hardware mirroring
- software mirroring
an example of hardware mirroring is that of sun fire v440. you can check out the command raidctl for this type.
for the software mirroring aka metadevices, you can check this out through a combination of commands:
with df, you check whether you are mounting a metadevice or a non-metadevice. metadevices are distinguised by /dev/md/dsk/dnn where nn is a number. using metastat dnn, you can determine what kind of metadevice you are looking at. when it says mirrored, then you are using software mirroring for solaris.
