TWS(4)							   BSD Kernel Interfaces Manual 						    TWS(4)

NAME
tws -- 3ware 9750 SATA+SAS 6Gb/s RAID controller card driver SYNOPSIS
To compile this driver into the kernel, place the following lines in your kernel configuration file: device scbus device tws Alternatively, to load the driver as a module at boot time, place the following line in loader.conf(5): tws_load="YES" DESCRIPTION
The tws driver provides support for LSI's 3ware 9750 SATA+SAS 6Gb/s RAID controller cards. These controllers feature the LSISAS2108 6Gb/s SAS RAID-on-Chip (ROC) and are available in 4- and 8-port configurations, supports RAID levels 0, 1, 5, 6, 10, 50 and single disk, with 96 SATA and/or SAS hard drives and SSDs. For further hardware information, see http://www.lsi.com/. HARDWARE
The tws driver supports the following SATA/SAS RAID controller: o LSI's 3ware SAS 9750 series LOADER TUNABLES
Tunables can be set at the loader(8) prompt before booting the kernel or stored in loader.conf(5). hw.tws.cam_depth The maximum queued CAM SIM requests for one controller. The default value is 256. hw.tws.enable_msi This tunable enables MSI support on the controller if set to a non-zero value. The default value is 0. hw.tws.queue_depth The maximum queued requests for one controller. hw.tws.use_32bit_sgls Limit the driver to use only 32-bit SG elements regardless whether the operating system is running in 64-bit mode. The default value is 0. FILES
/dev/da? array/logical disk interface /dev/tws? management interface DIAGNOSTICS
Whenever the driver encounters a command failure, it prints out an error code in the format: "ERROR: (<error source>: <error code>):", fol- lowed by a text description of the error. There are other error messages and warnings that the driver prints out, depending on the kinds of errors that it encounters. If the driver is compiled with TWS_DEBUG defined, it prints out a whole bunch of debug messages. SEE ALSO

NAME
twa -- 3ware 9000/9500/9550/9650 series SATA RAID controllers driver SYNOPSIS
To compile this driver into the kernel, place the following lines in your kernel configuration file: device scbus device twa Alternatively, to load the driver as a module at boot time, place the following line in loader.conf(5): twa_load="YES" DESCRIPTION
The twa driver provides support for AMCC's 3ware 9000/9500/9550/9650 series SATA controllers. These controllers are available in 4, 8, 12 or 16-port configurations, and support the following RAID levels: 0, 1, 10, 5, 50. The device nodes for the controllers are of the form /dev/twaX, where X is the controller number. The driver is implemented as a SCSI SIM under CAM, and, as such, the logical units that it controls are accessible via the device nodes, /dev/daY, where Y is the logical unit number. HARDWARE
The twa driver supports the following SATA RAID controllers: o AMCC's 3ware 9500S-4LP o AMCC's 3ware 9500S-8 o AMCC's 3ware 9500S-8MI o AMCC's 3ware 9500S-12 o AMCC's 3ware 9500S-12MI o AMCC's 3ware 9500SX-4LP o AMCC's 3ware 9500SX-8LP o AMCC's 3ware 9500SX-12 o AMCC's 3ware 9500SX-12MI o AMCC's 3ware 9500SX-16ML o AMCC's 3ware 9550SX-4LP o AMCC's 3ware 9550SX-8LP o AMCC's 3ware 9550SX-12 o AMCC's 3ware 9550SX-12MI o AMCC's 3ware 9550SX-16ML o AMCC's 3ware 9650SE-2LP o AMCC's 3ware 9650SE-4LPML o AMCC's 3ware 9650SE-8LPML o AMCC's 3ware 9650SE-12ML o AMCC's 3ware 9650SE-16ML o AMCC's 3ware 9650SE-24M8 DIAGNOSTICS
Whenever the driver encounters a command failure, it prints out an error code in the format: "ERROR: (<error source>: <error code>):", fol- lowed by a text description of the error. There are other error messages and warnings that the driver prints out, depending on the kinds of errors that it encounters. If the driver is compiled with TWA_DEBUG defined, it prints out a whole bunch of debug messages, the quantity of which varies depending on the value assigned to TWA_DEBUG (0 to 10). AUTHORS
