It supports (in hardware) RAID levels 0, 1, 0+1, 3, 5 and JBOD on up to 6 ATA disk drives, including automatic rebuild and hotswap, and supports signalling disk status on LEDs on Promise Super‐ swap disk enclosures. The Supertrak line of controllers does not support non-disk devices.

The pst driver first appeared in FreeBSD 4.7.
