Question How to find H/W RAID configuration installed

Hi Guys,

Is there any way by which I can find out what hardware RAID configuration is used on my Linux server by just looking at some of the /etc or /proc files. The reason for my query is that, I am monitoring a Linux server which is live. I can not reboot it to find which H/W RAID is used and what is the configuration (no. HDDs, RAID Version, Capacity, etc.). So which are the files that linux used to store such info. If anyone knows, pls reply.

cat /proc/mdstat

That should tell you your raid array information. Is that what you wanted?
