6. Features in the EATA DMA driver

This section describes some of the commands available under Linux to check on the RAID configuration. Again, while references to the eata_dma driver is made, this can be used to check up on any driver.

To see the configuration for your driver, type:

% cat /proc/scsi/eata_dma/N

where N is the host id for the controller. You should see something like this:

EATA (Extended Attachment) driver version: 2.59b
queued commands:         353969
processed interrupts:    353969

Sum   :           0            0

To get advanced command statistics, type:

% echo "eata_dma latency" > /proc/scsi/eata_dma/N

Then you can do a:

% cat /proc/scsi/eata_dma/N

to get more detailed statistics.

To turn off advanced command statistics, type:

% echo "eata_dma nolatency" > /proc/scsi/eata_dma/N
