Hi Reid,

OM records an event every 6 months related to the battery, likely an
automatic self-test.

Subject: PERC battery exercising?

Hi All -

One of my PERC controllers has a dying battery.  Back in the day I 
remember seeing a 'battery exerciser' utility for Windows that would do 
some funky draining/recharging of the battery to make it happy again. 
Anyone know if there's a linux equivalent?
