Checking the Status of RAID Components

You can use RAID Utility to check the status of the RAID card, its battery, your RAID
volumes, and the disk drives and RAID sets they are built on.

To check the status of a component:


Open RAID Utility.


Click an item in the component list on the left side of the window.

You can also check RAID component status using System Profiler. Choose About This
Mac from the Apple menu and click More Info. Then select Hardware RAID under
Hardware in the Contents list. System Profiler is also available in /Applications/Utilities/.

Self-Monitoring, Analysis, and Reporting Technology (SMART) status information for
disks is available only for SATA drives.
