The hpsa driver has the ability to claim unknown Smart Arrays, however this is turned off by default so that it does not try to claim older controllers meant to be claimed by the cciss driver. 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. Without this fix the system will panic on reboot when the HP cciss rpm has been uninstalled. That is, there are some kernels which have overlapping sets of controllers supported by both hpsa and 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.

Fixed bug where deleting logical volumes could hang the system. If you really want cciss on RHEL7 checkout the elrepo directory. 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. Note also that most tape drives will not oblige in aborting commands, and sometimes it appears they will not even obey a reset command, though in most circumstances they will.
Sign up or log in Sign up using Google. You can use these if you have a supported distribution running a supported kernel. Debian package only builds binary cciss module. There are 6 drive connected to up channel. I have 6 SSD disks. It reports any status changes, like failing disks, to the syslog and optionally to a remote host using SNMP traps.
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. There may be other software designed to work with cciss e. The only disk devices that are presented to the kernel are logical drives that the array controller constructs from regions on the physical drives.
Fixed a panic that could arise during an insmod and rmmod of the cciss driver. 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.
OS distros with warnings. I am running Fedora Core 5 kernel 2. The binary RPMs created by the source RPMs here do not do these things, they only build the driver module and initrd image.
How to use smartctl with cciss – Hewlett Packard Enterprise Community
Best way to thank in this forum is to assign points. You’ll find out soon enough if you do try to use it.
Added dynamic outstanding command llinux on a per controller basis. The current list of controllers that are supported by cciss only: The cciss driver must be informed that changes to the SCSI bus have been made.
Arrayprobe offsite makes a report of events recorded by Smartarray contollers. The hpsa driver is available in the kernel.
cciss(4) – Linux man page
Contact Email us Tell us what you think. The cciss driver participates in this protocol to some extent. One answer might be to run a standard smart test on all cciss disks, and find which one is broken, but I tried to call a -t short and -t long on all cciss from and all them except cciss,0 and ,1 acted as ccciss there had never been a kinux run on them.
My guess is that ‘smartctl’ doesn’t know how to properly talk through a hardware RAID controller.
