LOADER TUNABLES

Tunables can be set at the loader(8) prompt before booting the kernel or stored in loader.conf(5).
hw.tws.cam_depth The maximum queued CAM SIM requests for one controller. The default value is 256.
hw.tws.enable_msi This tunable enables MSI support on the controller if set to a non-zero value. The default value is 0.
hw.tws.queue_depth The maximum queued requests for one controller.
hw.tws.use_32bit_sgls

DIAGNOSTICS

Whenever the driver encounters a command failure, it prints out an error code in the format: "ERROR: (<error source>: <error code>):", followed by a text description of the error. There are other error messages and warnings that the driver prints out, depending on the kinds of errors that it encounters. If the driver is compiled with TWS_DEBUG defined, it prints out a whole bunch of debug messages.
