LSI SAS controller stuff

Recommended Posts

mobilenvidia

Below is a list of all known LSI SAS devices from the SAS1068 chipset to the very latest not yet publicly available SAS3xxx series.

Devices with links have been released and official website technical info/support.

Quite a few devices with no links are devices that may have been going to be released, are going to be released or just devices that never made it to production, but they are listed all the same.

I have where applicable written which devices are cross flashable to other devices of the same chipset.

If you have a controller and have successfully cross flashed or done something worthy, reply back here and the list will be updated.

If you find mistakes reply back.

If you know of other devices that we've missed reply back

If you find official webpages for devices listed but not linked reply back.

Key

4i = 1x internal 4 port SAS connector (SFF-8087)

8i = 2x internal 4 port SAS connectors (SFF-8087)

8e= 2x external 4 port SAS connector (SFF-8088)

24i4e = 6x internal 4 port SAS connector (SFF-8087) AND 1x external 4 port SAS connector (SFF-8088)

There are other combinations, but you get the idea :)

Some devices have SATA ports, ie a 4i device could mean 4x SATA connectors (these are rare)

Some devices have quite a few options when it comes to BBU's, these are optional extras, check website specs for options.

Some OEM devices look cheaper then their LSI counterparts (ie IBM ServeRAID M1015 vs LSI9240) this is due to the M1015 lacking RAID 5/50 and drive encryption.

IBM has a 'Advanced feature key' to enable the missing functions, these need to be purchased separately.

Be warned that the Software keys are NOT interchangeable between OEMs and LSI !!

Hope this is of use.

Info:

Caching mode for SAS1078, SAS2108, SAS2208, SAS3108 controllers:

SAS1068, SAS2008, SAS2308 and (probably) SAS3008 have no cache hence the below does not apply

Read mode

The "Read mode" parameter can be used to influence cache behavior for read. A maximum of three options "No read ahead", "Read ahead" and "Adaptive" are available. No caching during read takes place in the case of "No read ahead". If a data block is requested, "Read ahead" causes further sequentially following data blocks to be already read from the hard disk to the cache of the controller just in case, and in the hope that they will be called for in subsequent requests. In the case of the "Adaptive" setting the controller itself attempts to determine whether a read-ahead makes sense or not.

Write mode

The setting options of the controller cache that control the handling of write requests are summarized under the term "Write mode". There are three options for setting the write cache: "Write-through", "Write-back" and "Always Write-back (independent of BBU state)". The "Write-through" option ensures that each write request from the controller is only reported back as completed when it has been acknowledged by the hard disk. With the "Write-back" and "Always Write-back" options the requests are cached in the controller cache and they are immediately acknowledged to the application as completed and only transferred to the hard disk later. This procedure enables optimal utilization of controller resources, faster succession of the write requests and therefore higher throughput. Any power failures can be bridged by means of an optional BBU, thus guaranteeing the integrity of the data in the controller cache. The "Always Write-back" option enables the write cache on a permanent basis; it is also used if the battery of the BBU is empty or if no BBU is installed, whereas the "Write-back" option automatically switches to "Write-through" as long as the controller cache is not battery-buffered.

Cache mode

The "Cache mode" parameter, sometimes also referred to as "I/O Cache", influences the behavior of the controller cache during read. The "Direct" option defines that the data to be read is read from the hard disk directly and is also not stored in the controller cache. The alternative "Cached" causes an attempt to first be made to find the data in the controller cache and to satisfy the read request in such a way that the hard disk is accessed beforehand. All the data here is written to the controller cache so as to be available for subsequent read requests.

Disk cache mode

The possible values here are "enabled" and "disabled". In most cases, the enabling of the hard disk cache entails an increase in throughput for write access. If the system is safeguarded by UPS, the enabling of the hard disk cache is recommended for performance reasons.
