HighPoint RAID Management Suites

HighPoint RAID Management Suites

When it comes to maintaining critical storage configurations, each customer has specific needs and preferences.

The Web RAID Management Interface (WebGUI) is a simple, intuitive web-based management tool and is ideal for customers who are new to RAID technology.


The CLI (command line interface) is a powerful, text-only management interface designed for advanced users and professional administrators. Comprehensive user guides are available for both interfaces are available from each controller’s Software Updates webpage.

CLI – refers to the HighPoint Command Line Interface (RAID Management software). Originally developed for Linux and FreeBSD, it is now included with the standard Management Software downloads for Windows and macOS.

  • WebGUI The term “WebGUI” refers to our universal, graphical, Web-based Management Software; it works with any modern web browser, and is available for all major operating systems (Linux, Windows and macOS). This software has been released for all current product lines, and utilizes the same basic interface, regardless of OS or product.

WebGUI – The term “WebGUI” refers to our universal, graphical, Web-based Management Software; it works with any modern web browser, and is available for all major operating systems (Linux, Windows and macOS). This software has been released for all current product lines, and utilizes the same basic interface, regardless of OS or product.

A unique version of the utility, known as the “FnL Monitor”, is available for our FnL NVMe solutions. FnL monitor does not have the ability to configure arrays, but includes all of the maintenance /monitoring tools and features of the standard WebGUI.

  • SHI – SHI is an acronym for Storage Health Inspector. SHI is an important feature of our WebGUI management software, as it enables customers to check and track the condition of storage media (hard drives, SSDs) via SMART attributes, in real-time.

  • SMART Monitoring - HighPoint RAID solutions utilize SMART technology to monitor the status of storage devices. The term “SMART” is an acronym (S.M.A.R.T) and refers to “Self-Monitoring Analysis and Reporting Technology”. It was originally associated with hard disk drives, but has since been adopted by other types of storage media such as SAS/SATA SSD’s and NVMe SSD’s.

  • Auto-Rebuild - Auto-Rebuild is supported by all HighPoint RAID solutions, and is a RAID Management feature that enables a RAID solution to automatically initiate a rebuild process in the event of a disk failure. This feature is critical for many applications, as it ensures a redundant RAID array remains secure when direct administration or maintenance is not possible.

  • Hot Replaceable - Hot Replaceable refers to a RAID controllers ability to recognize and utilize drives added “on the fly” to address a critical array, without direct input from an administrator. HighPoint RAID solutions, with the exception of some NVMe products, will periodically rescan all active device ports to check for the presence (or absence) of storage media. 

  • Per-Port Performance Architecture – refers to the PCB architecture of the Performance Category of our RocketU (RU) series USB controllers. This architecture allocates a dedicated USB controller to each USB port to ensure maximum transfer bandwidth is available for each hosted USB device.

  • Selectable Silent Mode (Full Fan Control) – the WebGUI management tool now provides 3 speed settings for the Hyper-Cooling system, including options to fully disable the fan for projects that require complete silence. 

This feature is ideal for media and design applications that require low-noise or silent working environments, and platforms already equipped with robust cooling systems. Administrators can monitor temperatures of each NVMe SSD using HighPoint’s SHI technology (Storage Health Inspector), which can track the state of individual devices via SMART attributes, and adjust fan speeds on the fly to keep temperatures in check.

  • API Package –API (Application Programmable Interface) packages are available for OEM/ODM customers, and can be tailored to accommodate a wide range of products and solutions. Our API packages allow OEM/ODM customers to customize our WebGUI and CLI interfaces by altering the layout and feature set, and incorporate unique branding.

SHI is especially useful for NVMe storage applications, as it allows users to monitor the temperature and the TBW (total bytes written) status of each hosted NVMe SSD.

SMART data is conveyed to the user in the form of “attributes” – basically, the status of a particular hardware feature or condition (such as temperature, electrical statistics or errors associated with the drive’s behavior). SMART attributes provide a quick and simple way to check the status of a physical drive.
