Using the ServeRAID Monitoring Functions

Using the ServeRAID Monitoring Functions

This section contains instructions for using the ServeRAID Administration and Monitoring utility program to monitor the ServeRAID controller status information, event logs, logical drive information, and physical device information.

Monitoring Status Information: You can monitor the ServeRAID controller status by clicking on the active ServeRAID controller button on the Main Screen of the Administration and Monitoring utility program. The currently active ServeRAID controller button is indicated by a green or red light. (Green indicates an active controller, red indicates that the controller is not responding.)

If there is more than one ServeRAID controller in the system, click on the appropriate button to make it active.

A screen similar to the following appears.


Descriptions of the information that appears on the screen are as follows.

Note: You might have to scroll down, using the scroll bar, to see all of the items that appear on this screen.

Adapter Number    The active ServeRAID controller (1 to 8).
Number of Logical    The number of defined logical drives (0 to 8).
Unattended Mode    Off - The user chooses the recovery method when there is a ServeRAID
      controller startup error.
     On - The ServeRAID controller chooses the recovery method when there is a
      startup error.
Code Block    The current version level of the firmware microcode for the ServeRAID controller.
Boot Block    The current version level of the microcode loaded in the boot block for the
   Version    ServeRAID controller.
Concurrent    The maximum numbers of concurrent commands supported.
Maximum Devices    The maximum number of devices supported.
Flash Program Count    The number of times that the ServeRAID controller microcode (Flash EEPROM)
     has been flashed or updated.
Defunct Disk Count    The current number of defunct hard disk drives.
Rebuild Rate    The setting for the rebuild rate can be low, medium, or high priority.
     (The default setting is high.)
Hot-Swap Rebuild    If hot-swap rebuild is set to enable, the ServeRAID controller will
     rebuild a defunct drive automatically when all of the following conditions exist:
     ° The hot-swap rebuild parameter is set to Enable
     ° The defunct drive is part of a RAID level 1 or RAID level 5 logical drive
     ° The capacity of the replacement drive is equal to or greater than the
      capacity of the defunct drive
     ° No rebuild, synchronization, or RAID level change operation is in progress
      When you replace the drive and these requirements are met, the ServeRAID
      controller automatically initiates a rebuild of the drive
      without user intervention.
Offline Logical    The current number of offline logical drives.
   Drive Count  
Configuration    The number of times that the ServeRAID controller configuration information has
