The management for the Areca 1883i family of RAID controllers is accessible through the McRAID software or the built-in LAN port on the rear of the card.

 

As was the case when we took a look at the Areca 8050T2 eight-bay Thunderbolt 2 DAS, the left side offers options for creating RAID sets along with volume sets, creating pass-through disks with system level features including power management.

Looking at the system controls, options for NCQ support, read ahead cache among other is made available. Near the bottom of this list, you can also set PCIe Gen 3 support.

The advanced management options allow the end-user to set the TLER, the number of retries along with optimizations for each hard drive vendors.
