The BeaST again!

I’m working hard now to run the BeaST Storage system on the real hardware and hope to have some results and good news to post in the future.

Meanwhile, I have updated The BeaST Classic – dual-controller storage system with RAID arrays and CTL HA paper to a new version and wrote a tiny script to add SAS addresses to geom_show output. As a small bonus it sorts output by “serial numbers”, which can be useful if dealing with dual-attached drives.
