If it has the newer firmware, it will not work with aaccli.  If you  
got the card after they switched to the "R" revision, you have the  
newer firmware.

Some time long ago, someone posted a very short C program that probes  
the LSI controller and spits out this kind of output:

[root at d03]# amrstat
Drive 0:    34.18 GB, RAID1 <writeback,no-read-ahead,no-adaptative- 
io> optimal
Drive 1:   102.54 GB, RAID1 <writeback,no-read-ahead,no-adaptative- 
io> optimal

This is the kind of output I'd love to get from my adaptec  
controllers, too.  This can be trivially scripted and hooked into a  
monitoring system like nagios.

The aaccli tool is a curses based app (despite the "cli" in the name)  
and scripting it is damn near impossible.  It doesn't even read  
commands from stdin!
