Having trouble installing a piece of hardware? Want to know if that peripheral is compatible with Linux?

SiL 3114 RAID Monitor for Linux (Fedora 8)


Greetings,

I purchased a 2 port Sil3114 SATA controller about two years ago, have used it in Fedora Core 6, Fedora 7 and now 8. I know how to use mdadm to setup a software RAID 0 or 1, but I was planning to test out the actual 'hardware RAID' on the SiL3114 card. My only concern is that Linux will not know when a drive has failed and I will get no warning of a degraded RAID set until I reboot and the SiL BIOS complains.

Is there a utility for Linux that can monitor the RAID status of a hardware RAID on a SiL3114 controller?

If not, what controllers out there support Linux in this fashion?


Thanks.

e.g. 3ware controllers run quite nicely with linux. the driver is in the kernel already (module) and they come with a web interface, email notification and so forth. not cheap, but good.

Yeah, I may be able to get my hands on a 12 port 3Ware 3500 series SATA controller, but we'll see. Good to hear that it should work with Linux.

Thanks.
