NAME
     mfi -- LSI Logic & Dell MegaRAID SAS RAID controller

SYNOPSIS
     mfi* at pci? dev ? function ?

DESCRIPTION
     The mfi driver provides support for the MegaRAID SAS family of RAID controllers, including:

	   -   Dell PERC 5/e, PERC 5/i, PERC 6/e, PERC 6/i
	   -   Intel RAID Controller SRCSAS18E, SRCSAS144E
	   -   LSI Logic MegaRAID SAS 8208ELP, MegaRAID SAS 8208XLP, MegaRAID SAS 8300XLP,
	       MegaRAID SAS 8308ELP, MegaRAID SAS 8344ELP, MegaRAID SAS 8408E, MegaRAID SAS
	       8480E, MegaRAID SAS 8708ELP, MegaRAID SAS 8888ELP, MegaRAID SAS 8880EM2, MegaRAID
	       SAS 9260-8i
	   -   IBM ServeRAID M1015, ServeRAID M5014

     These controllers support RAID 0, RAID 1, RAID 5, RAID 6, RAID 10, RAID 50 and RAID 60 using
     either SAS or SATA II drives.

     Although the controllers are actual RAID controllers, the driver makes them look just like
     SCSI controllers.	All RAID configuration is done through the controllers' BIOSes.

     mfi supports monitoring of the logical disks in the controller through the bioctl(8) and
     envstat(8) commands.

EVENTS
     The mfi 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 mfi driver first appeared in NetBSD 4.0.
