  • Disabled: disables the background consistency check function. The default value is Disabled.

Device based BBS support

Indicates the device reported to the BIOS. The value options are as follows:

  • Enabled: reports hard drive or RAID device information to the BIOS.
  • Disabled: reports only RAID device information to the BIOS. The default value is Disabled.

SATA NCQ(Native Command Queuing)

Indicates the status of the optimization configuration for SATA read and write commands by the controller. The value options are as follows:

  • Enabled: enables the optimization configuration.
  • Disabled: disables the optimization configuration. The default value is Enabled.

Physical Drives Display during POST

Indicates whether the currently connected physical hard drive is displayed during the Option ROM boot phase. The value options are as follows:

  • Enabled: displays the hard drive.
  • Disabled: does not display the hard drive. The default value is Enabled.

Alarm Control

Indicates the onboard buzzer status. The value options are as follows:

  • Disabled: disables the onboard buzzer.
  • Enabled: enables the onboard buzzer.
  • Silence: mutes the onboard buzzer.
  • Test: tests the onboard buzzer.

Default Background Task Priority

Indicates the default background task priority. The value options are as follows:

  • High
  • Medium
  • Low. The default value is High.

Backplane Mode

Indicates the backplane interaction mode. The value options are as follows:

  • SGPIO
  • IBPI
  • Disabled. The default value is SGPIO.

Selectable Performance Mode

Indicates the performance mode. The value options are as follows:

  • Dynamic
  • OLTP/Db
  • Big Block Bypass
  • User Defined. The default value is Dynamic.

Controller Mode

Indicates the controller working mode. The value options are as follows:

  • RAID: expose RAW: If hard drives are not configured with RAID properties, the controller card reports them to the OS as raw hard drives. Therefore, the hard drives can be operated on the OS directly.
  • RAID: hide RAW: The controller card reports only the hard drives configured with the RAID properties.
  • HBA: No RAID level is supported, and all hard drives are reported as raw hard drives.
  • Auto Volume: If hard drives are not configured with the RAID properties but contain OS partitions, the controller card reports them to the OS as raw hard drives. If the hard drives are not configured with the RAID properties and do not contain the OS partitions, the controller card reports them after volumes are created in the hard drives by using the controller card. The default value is RAID: expose RAW.

Max Link Speed

Indicates the controller port rate. The value options are as follows:

  • 6 GBPS
  • 12 GBPS
