In the "Summary" tab of the desired controller, you will find :
For Key Features, you will see if :
For resources, you will find :
Note that the default operating mode for Microsemi Adaptec SmartRAID controllers is RAID, but you can also use HBA mode on ports where you have not yet created logical drives.
If you only have one port, you will need to delete your RAID volumes first before you can change the functional mode to HBA.
As previously indicated, the temperature shown in the "Controller Info" column is that of the RAID processor of your Microsemi Adaptec SmartRAID controller.
To obtain all the temperatures read by your Microsemi Adaptec SmartRAID controller, click on the small "i" to the right of it.
In our case, our Microsemi Adaptec SmartRAID 3154-8i8e controller has 2 temperature probes :
If you look at page 78 of the "Installation and User Guide - Adaptec® SmartRAID 3100 Series and SmartHBA 2100 Series Host Bus Adapters" PDF, you will see that the ambient temperature is measured 1 inch from the processor.
And on page 12, you will see that our Microsemi Adaptec SmartRAID 3154-8i8e controller has 2 temperature sensors : 1 for ambient temperature (Inlet Ambient) and another for processor temperature (ASIC).
If you look on the page of your Microsemi Adaptec SmartRAID controller, you will see that Microsemi is telling you the temperature which is measured 1 inch from the RAID processor.
It's therefore the "Inlet Ambient" value that you must look at and not the other (ASIC = processor).
In the "Properties" tab, you will find a lot of information about your RAID controller (connection and driver), the status of the ASCM-35F battery, its settings, as well as information about key features including, the bezel of your Microsemi SmartRAID controller.
For information about the Controller (Controller Info), you will find :
For the ASCM-35F battery, also called the Green Backup Unit, you will find :
For the settings of your Microsemi Adaptec controller, you will find :
For the Key Features, you will find :
For the cache, it's in our case : 10% Read / 90% Write.
In the "Resources" tab of your Microsemi controller, you will find the list of :
In the "Connectors" tab of your Controller, you will find the list of internal and external ports available on your Microsemi SmartRAID controller with :
So, we can easily see that the CN4 and CN5 ports of our Microsemi Adaptec SmartRAID 3154-8i8e controller are the 2 internal ports and the CN0 and CN1 ports are the external ones.
In the "Events" tab of your Microsemi controller, you will see the list of events concerning your Microsemi controller.
In our case, for example, we can see that parity initialization is in progress in the background on our MSCC Adaptec SmartRAID 3154-8i8e controller.
At the bottom of the page, in the "Tasks" tab, we can see the progress of this initialization : Background Parity Initialization logical device controller 1, logical device 0 (Virtualization) - 42%.
In the maxCache Device section, you will find the volumes and logical drives that you created and defined as cache devices.
These will be used by the maxCache feature to improve the performance of your RAID volumes.
In our case, we don't have one.
In the "Arrays" tab, you will find the list of your hard disk arrays with :
In the "Logical Devices" tab, you will find the list of logical drives created on your Microsemi controller with :
In the "Summary" tab, you will find information about the hard disks array (Array Info) selected on the left :
You will also find the settings and status of your hard drives array :
You will also find a graph on the right with the free space and the total space of the selected array.
In the "Resources" tab of your array, you will find the list of :
In the "Events" tab, you will find the events related to it.
