I've got extensive experience trying to make the H8SSL-i work under load.
I've tried RELENG_6_2, RELENG_6 and RELENG_7 at various points in time, using
either the onboard SATA and gmirror or PCI-X 9550SE 3wares.
My results are: Given enough time and load every combination has hung.
My best results: RELENG_6_2 with the 3ware cards. I can get 2 weeks out of a
box at moderate load on average before it panics.
Worst results: Tied between RELENG_7 with the 3ware cards and RELENG_6_2 with
the onboard SATA in native SATA mode. Data corruption is so bad installation
is generally not possible.
I can probably manage SSH + serial console access to anyone who wants to take
a crack at fixing for a while with whatever combination of hardware and
FreeBSD version you want. We're in the process of migrating off them, which
will leave some hardware laying around for a couple weeks.
