Check the Array’s Health and Status: Icons

LaCie RAID Manager features icons to easily identify the state of the LaCie professional DAS and its components.

Array

Icon Description Notes
Online array The array is operating normally.
Degraded array The array is degraded and has no fault tolerance. In this state, data is not recoverable if one physical disk fails. Rebuild the array by replacing the failed physical disks.

 

Events

Icon Description Notes
Normal event Example: Physical disk 1 is assigned as spare.
Unknown event Any event that was not recognized by LaCie RAID Manager.
Warning event Example: Virtual Disk 1 is deleted.
Critical event Example: Virtual Disk 1 is degraded.

 

Physical disk

Icon Description Notes
Unconfigured physical disk The physical disk is available for use in an array and virtual disk.
Configured physical disk The physical disk is part of a virtual disk.
Foreign physical disk The foreign physical disk is part of a virtual disk created with another RAID device. The foreign physical disk cannot be used with this device unless the RAID configuration metadata is erased on the disk.
Offline physical disk The physical disk is part of a virtual disk and has an error. Check the event log for details and replace the physical disk if necessary. Note: An offline physical disk can render a virtual disk offline or degrade it.
Unconfigured spare drive The spare drive is available for rebuilding virtual disks and arrays.
Configured spare drive The spare drive was used to rebuild a virtual disk.

 

Virtual disk

Icon Description Notes
Online virtual disk The virtual disk is operating normally.
Online Virtual Disk with Background Activity The virtual disk is operating normally and performing a background activity.
Offline virtual disk This virtual disk is not operating because one or more member physical disks are not connected. Data cannot be written to or read from the virtual disk.
Foreign virtual disk The RAID configuration metadata on the physical disk indicates that it is part of a virtual disk that was created with another RAID device.
Partially optimal virtual disk One or more physical disks in the virtual disk have failed and reduced the fault tolerance of the virtual disk. The virtual disk is still operating normally.
Partially optimal virtual disk with background activity The partially optimal virtual disk is performing a background activity.
Degraded virtual disk The virtual disk is degraded and has no fault tolerance. In this state, data is not recoverable if one physical disk fails. Rebuild the virtual disk by replacing the failed physical disks.
Degraded virtual disk with background activity The degraded virtual disk is rebuilding.
