How to use Intel SSD Toolbox on Intel S3700 disks with Dell PERC H710P


In 2013, I purchased 11 Intel SSD 200G DC S3700 drives. I have them installed on a Dell PowerEdge R720 using a PERC H710P RAID controller. I would like to use the toolbox to check on the status of these drives and to perform the other functions to improve performance. Is this possible?

If it's important, I have 2 of the drives configured as RAID-1 and the 8 others as RAID-50 (with one uninstalled spare).
