This depends entirely on the hardware and its driver. Some manufactures like 3ware
give you a utility to monitor and control the card. Others write information in to
/proc or /sys. Others (HP and Dell come to mind) require companion services to be
running and might function through SNMP.

If you are unsure you should contact the hardware vendor. It may be the vendor you
chose does not fully support Linux, or only supports it in a limited capacity.
