Make sure your system isn't in background init mode etc. Of course
I don't know how to do this without LSI monitoring utitilies.
Complain to LSI the need for this. Without the various utilities and
versions with fixed bugs you can't run a reliable RAID (ie. won't
get RAID notificatioin that a drive went away, it is doing a
consistancy check, etc).
The more people that complain then hopefully we can get LSI to fix
their binary only utilities that are required to monitor and admin.
their RAID controller :-(
I messured the amr RAID controller is faster for everything then aac
on the same HW and drives under RAID 10.
