mpii -- LSI Logic Fusion-MPT Message Passing Interface II SYNOPSIS
mpii* at pci? dev ? function ? DESCRIPTION
The mpii driver provides support for storage controllers using the LSI Logic Fusion-MPT Message Passing Interface II family of chipsets: - LSISAS2004, LSISAS2008 These chipsets can be found on the following controllers: - Dell PERC H200 - LSI SAS 9200-8e, SAS 9211-4i, SAS 9211-8i Some models of these controllers have varying degrees of support for RAID 0 and RAID 1. mpii supports monitoring of the logical disks in the controller through the bioctl(8) and envstat(8) commands. EVENTS
The mpii driver is able to send events to powerd(8) if a logical drive in the controller is not online. The state-changed event will be sent to the /etc/powerd/scripts/sensor_drive script when such condition happens. SEE ALSO
intro(4), pci(4), scsi(4), sd(4), bioctl(8), envstat(8), powerd(8) HISTORY
The mpii driver first appeared in OpenBSD 4.7. AUTHORS
The mpii driver was written by James Giannoules and Mike Belopuhov. BUGS
The chips supported by mpii do not use a SCSI-like identifier. Instead they use an opaque ID and leave discovery order up to the operating system. The code to handle this is currently not implemented and therefore it is not a good idea to run this driver on a multi-boot machine or with more than 1 drive. BSD

mpt -- LSI Fusion-MPT SCSI/Fibre Channel driver SYNOPSIS
To compile this driver into the kernel, place the following lines in your kernel configuration file: device scbus device mpt Alternatively, to load the driver as a module at boot time, place the following line in loader.conf(5): mpt_load="YES" DESCRIPTION
The mpt driver provides support for the LSI Logic Fusion-MPT family of SCSI, Fibre Channel and SAS controllers. HARDWARE
The following controllers are supported by the mpt driver: o LSI Logic 53c1030, LSI Logic LSI2x320-X (Single and Dual Ultra320 SCSI) o LSI Logic AS1064, LSI Logic AS1068 (SAS/SATA) o LSI Logic FC909 (1Gb/s Fibre Channel) o LSI Logic FC909A (Dual 1Gb/s Fibre Channel) o LSI Logic FC919, LSI Logic 7102XP-LC (Single 2Gb/s Fibre Channel) o LSI Logic FC929, LSI Logic FC929X, LSI Logic 7202XP-LC (Dual 2Gb/s Fibre Channel) o LSI Logic FC949X (Dual 4Gb/s Fibre Channel) o LSI Logic FC949E, LSI Logic FC949ES (Dual 4Gb/s Fibre Channel PCI-Express) The Ultra 320 SCSI controller chips supported by the mpt driver can be found onboard on many systems including: o Dell PowerEdge 1750 thru 2850 o IBM eServer xSeries 335 These systems also contain Integrated Raid Mirroring and Integrated Raid Mirroring Enhanced which this driver also supports. The SAS controller chips are also present on many new AMD/Opteron based systems, like the Sun 4100. Note that this controller can drive both SAS and SATA drives or a mix of them at the same time. The Integrated Raid Mirroring available for these controllers is poorly supported at best. The Fibre Channel controller chipset are supported by a broad variety of speeds and systems. The Apple Fibre Channel HBA is in fact the FC949ES card. This driver also supports target mode for Fibre Channel cards. This support may be enabled by setting the desired role of the core via the LSI Logic firmware utility that establishes what roles the card can take on - no separate compilation is required. SEE ALSO
