i did install the system now on ar0. the dmesg output below didn't
change. the df does show only one drive - ar0 - with a few slices...
assuming now that i have RAID1 working is there any way to monitor disks
individually? or as an array?
how can i be sure that the RAID is actually working? or get any stats?
i figured the driver for the <Intel MatrixRAID RAID1> must be iir. bit
from the iir man page ther is not much about monitoring or status...
