I installed FreeBSD on a Compaq server a whhile back with thier RAID
contloer. Last night it crashed, and when I looked at the console, it was
in the Raid BIOS, with a message about a drive that had previously been
bad, now being good..

Are their any tools that I can use in FreeBSD to determine the health oif
the individual dirives in this aray? Both for determining what may curently
be bad, and for adding warnings when one of the 2 drives fails?

If it helps. I'm getting messages liek this in /varr/log/messages:
