From time to time there may be instances in which hardware or driver features are not supported by the cciss driver which comes with your distribution or kernel, because it is too old, or the hardware is too new, etc. Sign up using Facebook. Fixed bug where deleting logical volumes could hang the system. Added a procfs interface so users can tell the driver to rescan our devices. I can’t comment on this much as I haven’t tried it, but from my so far very brief perusing of the code it appears to be alright at first glance, basically doing the expected things.

In these instances you may wish to try the source RPMs or tarballs provided here. Here’s the man page. Updates for kdump support Changes since 3. Hope this helps you: This is because at driver init time, the SCSI core may not yet be initialized because the driver is a block driver and attempting to register it with the SCSI core in such a case would cause a hang. Supported it for some time on 3Ware’s and since 5.
The driver will output messages indicating which devices have been added or removed and the controller, bus, target and lun used to address each device. It ccixs any status changes, like failing disks, to the syslog and optionally to a remote host using SNMP traps.
It gives much better information for virtual disks etc. Debian package is greatly simplified.
If you’ve been using cciss already on these controllers, it is not recommended that you attempt to upgrade your running system to switch from cciss to hpsa unless you have a very good reason to do so and know what you are doing. To install, download the RPM file, and use rpm -ihv rpmfile This will deposit the lihux.
Fixed sysfs link issue. Last updated March 4, latest version is 4. This feature has been removed, as any Smart Arrays not known to cciss are now presumed to be claimed by the hpsa driver. Fixed issue where ACU would hang after several operations. BTW, if you happen across a 2. These won’t work with very old kernels such as the 2. The only disk devices that are presented to the kernel are logical drives that the array controller constructs from regions on the physical drives.
Last updated March 4, latest version is 3. This occurs for all drive pairs. The hpsa driver is available in the kernel. In this case, it is just a text file, documentation, meant for human consumption. I have 6 SSD disks. The intent with newer kernels 2.

This new driver will support new Smart Array products going forward, and the cciss driver will eventually be deprecated. Fixed bug where deleting logical volumes could hang the system. If you would like to run hpsa instead, there is a new module parameter to cciss, “cciss.
If you’re using identical physical disks you won’t notice any “difference” as smartmontools is focused on monitoring physical disks and not controllers or logical disks you can and will not find any information of those in smartmontools. Fix firmware version not being printed in procfs. Site Search Library linux docs linux man pages page load time Toys world sunlight moon phase trace explorer.
From time to time there may be instances in which hardware or driver features are not supported by the cciss driver which comes with your distribution or kernel, because it is too old, or the hardware is too new, etc.
In the case of kernels with cciss and hpsa drivers which do have overlapping sets of supported controllers, by default, cciss will claim these devices if it is loaded prior to hpsa which it normally will be. This is simply because making the switch is somewhat complex and it is easy to make a mistake or forget something and get your system into an unbootable state.
