Up to 32 SATA devices may be plugged directly to each SATA HBA and up to 15 SATA devices may be plugged directly to each SATA port multiplier supported by the Solaris SATA framework. The actual number of pluggable devices may be lower, and is limited by the number of device ports on the SATA HBA or the SATA port multiplier. The maximum data rate is either 1.5Gb/sec. or 3.0Gb/sec., depending on the capability of a SATA device, port multiplier and SATA HBA controller.
The Solaris SATA framework adheres to the Serial ATA 1.0a specification and supports SATA-2 signaling speed 3.0Gb/sec. SATA devices that are connected to SATA HBAs controlled by a SATA framework-compliant HBA driver are treated by the system as SCSI devices. The Solaris SCSI disk driver (sd(4D)) is attached as a target driver for each device node created by the SATA framework. You can use the cfgadm(8) utility to manage hot plugged and unplugged SATA devices.
