Pretty surprising that it is being sold for such a low price. First-rate writeup, Marc – thanks for working on this. I had no issues with this setup. Also, everything works fine on Win7, so the hardware is ok. I have an LSI i. I just want to know if I can connect 4 drives to one port, two drives to each port, or only one drive to each port.

I want to use mdadm so I want to be able to address each disk individually. Despite being AHCI-compliant, this series of chips seems unsupported by Solaris according to reader comments, see below. Share this post Link to post.

Just curious what you all would recommend. I am frustrated by this as well Some combinations do work, but you are going to spend a lot of time researching that. It seems like that shouldn’t be necessary.

For reference, linnux maximum practical throughputs per port I assumed have been computed with these formulas: Quite expensive; I would recommend buying a cheaper!


Its popularity is spreading Thank-you this is very useful. The drivers can be downloaded from here: Lots of bandwidth per port. Thanks for keeping this list up to date! These partitions are used by madam directly without putting a filesystem onto the single disk.

I was totally ignorant abou SAS despite I had a HP workstation, I never played with it and now it got broken after nearly 10 years of service Back to the question of software vs. Koutech HBA based on this chip: So looking for another card, I decided to buy a JMB card. If you are performance-wise, avoid PMs, indeed. The chip JMB supports 2 sata ports.

However the controller seems to write metadata onto the disks.

Just to complete my observations: Do they use their own chips? I also have a Debian 6 ZoL 0.

Thanks alot, this was very helpful. Sign up or log in Sign up using Google. I haven’t needed to flash it with the IT firmware to get passthrough on disks. Intel HBAs based on this chip: This is quite affordable, but installation in a normal case is a bit fiddly I have personally tested it with 6 x 1TB SATA drives of various manufacture on Xoc-sas2lp-mv8 server. I wish I would have found it before ordering the controller.


I have a fairly basic question about the “4 x 8-port Marvell 88SE,” which supports lijux drives.

Now I wanted to migrate to Ubuntu Do you know of any such card, supported by OpenSolaris? This patch seems to work for me on Ubuntu This wording means the motherboard is not using a port multiplier, but that it does support aoc-sas2,p-mv8 optional port multiplier downstream eg.

And it does not support drives larger than 2TB.
