You can read the alarm log and query the status of the controller with
the command line administration tool (tw_cli), which you can download
from the 3ware website. It is a statically linked binary which you can
run during installation.
In addition to that, I read that there is a critical firmware update for
the 8506-series controllers in RAID 5 configurations. You might want to
check that outi (http://www.3ware.com/support/index.asp).
