mdadm is a program that can be used to create, manage, and monitor
Linux MD (Software RAID) devices.
As such is provides similar functionality to the raidtools packages.
The particular differences to raidtools is that mdadm is a single
program, and it can perform (almost) all functions without a
configuration file (that a config file can be used to help with
some common tasks).
