Broadcom SAS HBA controllers with SAS MPIO


Broadcom (previously LSI) has a dedicated firmware for some of its SAS Host Bus Adapter controllers that might be required when external multi-path (MPIO) configurations are being implemented. It was created to increase the responsiveness of the topology during the event of a cable pull, IOM/ESM reset, or a drive pull. Broadcom recommends upgrading the controllers, otherwise, they might cause problems. In some cases, it’s necessary to update the backplane firmware as well.

This firmware is suitable only for multi-path implementations.
