       mpt-status - retrieve configuration and health status from LSI hardware
       RAID controllers


       mpt-status [ options ]


       The  mpt-status  software  is  a  query  tool  to  access  the  running
       configuration  and  status  of LSI SCSI HBAs.  mpt-status allows you to
       monitor the health and status of your RAID setup.


              This will try to automatically load the mptctl kernel module.

       -u --controller <int>
              Set the IOC unit (controller).

       -h --help
              Print some help information.

       -n --newstyle
              Use the new style  output.  This  parameter  was  introduced  to
              retain  backwards  compatibility.  If  not  set, you get the old
              style output.  It is very likely that the output of the newstyle
              format  will  change heavily in the future, so do not rely on it
              when writing plugins for monitoring software, for example.

       -i --set_id <int>
              Set id of primary device (check README).

       -p --probe_id
              Use this to probe SCSI id’s when not on id 0.

       -q --quiet
              Do not display any warnings.

       -s --status_only
              Only print the status information. This can  be  used  for  easy

       -v --verbose
              Print verbose information, such as warnings

       -V --version
              Print version information

       -d --debug [<int>]
              Enable  debugging  and  set level optionally.  NOTE: This is not
              fully implemented yet.


       The program’s exit(2) status is meant to be interpreted as a bit  mask.
       If  everything went well, zero is returned. If not (i.e. if for example
       an error or unknown condition is detected),  the  bits  of  the  return
       value shall be interpreted as:

       Bit   Value   Meaning
         0       1   Abnormal condition / unknown error
         1       2   A logical volume has failed
         2       4   A logical volume is degraded
         3       8   A logical volume is resyncing
         4      16   At least one physical disk failed
         5      32   At least one physical disk is in warning condition


       Report  bugs  to  your  linux  distribution or software vendor, if mpt-
       status was bundled on your installation. If  you  have  been  compiling
       mpt-status  from  the vanilla sources and experience problems, redirect
       them to preferably <> or <>.


       Besides design bugs, gross software engineering and  missing  features,
       this software is considered pretty stable and can be used in production




       LSI Logic provides CLI tools for megaraid  controllers  which  you  can
       find           on           their           webpage,          following
