Could you explain what does all this devices mean? Particularly, what is ad4, ad6, ar0

                        /dev/ad4s1f     /dev/ad6s1e     /dev/ar0s1d
/dev/ad4        /dev/ad4s1g     /dev/ad6s1f     /dev/ar0s1e
/dev/ad4s1      /dev/ad6        /dev/ad6s1g     /dev/ar0s1f
/dev/ad4s1a     /dev/ad6s1      /dev/ar0        /dev/ar0s1g
/dev/ad4s1b     /dev/ad6s1a     /dev/ar0s1      
/dev/ad4s1d     /dev/ad6s1b     /dev/ar0s1a    
/dev/ad4s1e     /dev/ad6s1d     /dev/ar0s1b    

What kind of raid I have? Raid 0 or raid 1?

Why I don't have /dev/raid folder on NS1? but I have /dev/raid/ folder on ns2
