NAME
     mlxctl -- Mylex DAC960 family management utility

SYNOPSIS
     mlxctl [-f dev] [-v] [-a] status [drive] [...]
     mlxctl [-f dev] [-a] detach [drive] [...]
     mlxctl [-f dev] [-a] check [drive] [...]
     mlxctl [-f dev] rebuild channel:target
     mlxctl [-f dev] cstatus
     mlxctl [-f dev] rescan
     mlxctl [-f dev] config

DESCRIPTION
     The mlxctl utility performs status monitoring and management functions for Mylex DAC960 RAID
     controllers and attached devices.

     The following options are available:

     -a       Apply the action to all drives attached to the controller.

     -f dev   Specify the control device to use.  The default is /dev/mlx0.

     -v       Increased verbosity.

     The following commands are available:

     cstatus  Display the controller's current status.

     status   Display the status of the specified drives.  This command returns 0 if all drives
	      tested are online, 1 if one or more drives are critical and 2 if one or more are
	      offline.

     rescan   Re-scan the logical drive table, and attach or detach devices from the system as
	      necessary.

     detach   Detach the specified drives.  Drives must be unmounted and unopened for this com-
	      mand to succeed.

     check    Initiate a consistency check and repair pass on a drive that provides redundancy
	      (e.g., RAID1 or RAID5).  This command returns immediately.  The status command can
	      be used to monitor the progress of the check.

     rebuild  Rebuild onto the specified physical drive.  Note that there can be only one running
	      rebuild operation per controller at any given time.  This command returns immedi-
	      ately.  The cstatus command can be used to monitor the progress of the rebuild.

     config   Write the current system drive configuration to stdout.

EXAMPLES
     Display the status of drive ld3 attached to the controller mlx1:

	   mlxctl -f /dev/mlx1 -v status ld3

SEE ALSO
     ld(4), mlx(4)

HISTORY
     The mlxctl command first appeared in NetBSD 1.5.3, and was based on the mlxcontrol utility
     found in FreeBSD.

BUGS
     Modifying drive configuration is not yet supported.

     Some commands do not work with older firmware revisions.

     Error log extraction is not yet supported.
