Write cache is used when we have a lot of data to write and it is faster to write data sequentially to disk instead of writing small chunks. A second one with a RAID6 arrays of 7 drives with one offline the array has just been created so it’s under initialization too. The script can be called with –nagios parameter.

A complete documentation is attached as PDF here: We can megaraod configurations in megacli like Virtual Drive with RAID 0 over one physical drive, we have this settings because physical drives attached to raid controller, and for representing the device to the system we must set it in megacli.
X 64bit; I can see the disks as standalone disks as well as dmraid devices.
