Hi,

Mostly by the H/W vendor, but since linux is open source you may also get it with linux distribution if the h/w is so popular.

Most of the H/W RAID require from you to work from the console and while the server is shutdown.

H/W RAID is better in performance, but S/W RAID is more flexible.

If you are using hardware RAID, then when the server boots up, there will be a BIOS level RAID menu that you can use to view/configure the RAID setup.

As omarfarid has said, there is almost certainly a Linux driver/utility that will allow you to view the same info from Linux.
