43.Nd LSI Fusion-MPT SCSI/Fibre Channel driver
44.Sh SYNOPSIS
1435b4dc
SW
45To compile this driver into the kernel,
46place the following lines in your
47kernel configuration file:
48.Bd -ragged -offset indent
22897853 49.Cd "device scbus"
1435b4dc
SW
50.Cd "device mpt"
51.Ed
52.Pp
53Alternatively, to load the driver as a
54module at boot time, place the following line in
55.Xr loader.conf 5 :
56.Bd -literal -offset indent
57mpt_load="YES"

60The
61.Nm
62driver provides support
63for the LSI Logic Fusion-MPT family of

114The
115.Tn Ultra 320 SCSI
116controller chips supported by the
117.Nm
118driver can be found onboard on many systems including:

SW
127These systems also contain Integrated Raid Mirroring and Integrated
128Raid Mirroring Enhanced which this driver also supports.
129.Pp
130The
131.Tn SAS
132controller chips are also present on many new AMD/Opteron based systems,
133like the Sun 4100.
134Note that this controller can drive both SAS and SATA
135drives or a mix of them at the same time.
136The Integrated Raid Mirroring
137available for these controllers is poorly supported at best.
138.Pp
139The
140.Tn Fibre Channel
141controller chipset are supported by a broad variety of speeds and systems.
142The
143.Tn Apple
144Fibre Channel HBA is in fact the
145.Tn FC949ES
146card.
147.Pp
148This driver also supports target mode for Fibre Channel cards.
149This support may be enabled by setting the desired role of the core via
150the LSI Logic firmware utility that establishes what roles the card
151can take on - no separate compilation is required.
