NAME

     ami - American Megatrends Inc. MegaRAID Controllers

SYNOPSIS

     ami* at pci? dev ? function ?
     scsibus* at ami?

DESCRIPTION

     The ami driver provides support for the MegaRAID family of RAID controll-
     ers, including:

           Dell PERC2/DC, PERC3/DC, PERC3/DCL, PERC3/QC, PERC3/SC,
           Dell PERC4/DC, PERC4/SC, PERC4/Di, PERC4/Si, and CERC
           Hewlett-Packard 438, 466, and T[567]
           LSI/AMI MegaRAID
           LSI/Symbios 523 SATA

     These controllers support RAID 0, RAID 1, RAID 5, JBOD, and superposi-
     tions of those configurations.

     Some cards support both I2O and a so-called `Mass Storage' mode of opera-
     tion. This driver only supports the `Mass Storage' mode; I2O mode is sup-
     ported by the iop(4) driver.

     Although the controllers are actual RAID controllers, the driver makes
     them look just like SCSI controllers. All RAID configuration is done
     through the controllers' BIOSes.
