MegaCLI and megactl are definitely different. MegaCLI is the official 
configuration and inspection tool from LSI. megactl/megasasctl is an 
alternate program I authored that does some things MegaCLI does not do; 
in particular it uses SCSI passthrough to get info directly from the 
disks in a RAID so you can check error conditions at the drive 
controller level rather than the RAID controller level. It can also 
start disk self-tests and check their results.
