Call for testers: mpi(4)
Contributed by ben on Tue Jul 11 03:28:49 2006 (GMT)
from the testers-required-plz dept.

David Gwynne (dlg@) has been working hard to make mpi(4) a full replacement for mpt(4). He recently committed support for firmware uploading, which was the final piece that mpi did not support. As of this commit, mpi now does everything that mpt did, and more. mpi brings support for more hardware (such as SAS and FibreChannel controllers), as well as much better support for RAID volumes.

David would like to receive feedback from users that have mpi hardware, especially SAS and FC controllers. You should do whatever you can to stress your system. sysutils/iogen is a great tool for this job.

  as soon as I get my new dell server with the 1x4 2.5" SAS backplane I will go at it, who says obsd doesn't have the latest and greatest USEFUL hardware support.

  Um, the mpi acronym is already taken by the Message Passing Interface.

  Well, since the call went out I've received all of 0 test reports from people. I have bugged a few people, but still...

I can only think of two reasons why this would be. One, noones testing it, or two, the driver is perfect. I'm going to assume it's the latter, which is good, cos it means I'm awesome and I get to inflate my ego even further :D :D Also, it means there are no bugs that are going to bite people in the next release.

  I don't have a machine with that hardware, so I'm not testing. :-)
I'll just have to be content with the revealed Truth of your perfection.
