 32.Sh NAME
 33.Nm tws
 34.Nd 3ware 9750 SATA+SAS 6Gb/s RAID controller card driver
 35.Sh SYNOPSIS
 36To compile this driver into the kernel,
 37place the following lines in your
 38kernel configuration file:
 39.Bd -ragged -offset indent
 40.Cd "device scbus"
 41.Cd "device tws"
 42.Ed
 43.Pp
 44Alternatively, to load the driver as a
 45module at boot time, place the following line in
 46.Xr loader.conf 5 :
 47.Bd -literal -offset indent
 48tws_load="YES"
 49.Ed
 50.Sh DESCRIPTION
 51The
 52.Nm
 53driver provides support for LSI's 3ware 9750 SATA+SAS 6Gb/s RAID controller cards.
 54.Pp
 55These controllers feature the LSISAS2108 6Gb/s SAS RAID-on-Chip (ROC)
 56and are available in 4- and 8-port configurations, supports RAID levels
 570, 1, 5, 6, 10, 50 and single disk, with 96 SATA and/or SAS hard drives and SSDs.
 58.Pp
 59For further hardware information, see
 60.Pa http://www.lsi.com/.
 61.Sh HARDWARE
 62The
 63.Nm
 64driver supports the following SATA/SAS RAID controller:

 70.Sh LOADER TUNABLES
 71Tunables can be set at the
 72.Xr loader 8
 73prompt before booting the kernel or stored in
 74.Xr loader.conf 5 .
 75.Bl -tag -width "hw.tws.use_32bit_sgls"
 76.It Va hw.tws.cam_depth
 77The maximum queued CAM SIM requests for one controller.
 78The default value is 256.
 79.It Va hw.tws.enable_msi
 80This tunable enables MSI support on the controller if set to a non-zero value.
 81The default value is 0.
 82.It Va hw.tws.queue_depth
 83The maximum queued requests for one controller.
 84.It Va hw.tws.use_32bit_sgls
 85Limit the driver to use only 32-bit SG elements regardless whether the operating
 86system is running in 64-bit mode.
 87The default value is 0.

 96.Sh DIAGNOSTICS
 97Whenever the driver encounters a command failure, it prints out an error code in
 98the format:
 99.Qq Li "ERROR: (<error source>: <error code>):" ,
100followed by a text description of the error.
101There are other error messages and warnings that the
102driver prints out, depending on the kinds of errors that it encounters.
103If the driver is compiled with
104.Dv TWS_DEBUG
105defined, it prints out a whole bunch of debug
106messages.
