Re: [dm-devel] Designing a new prio_callout



Hi Ethan,

I might not understand the problem completely but I do not understand
the benefit of changing rr_min_io. As far as I can see from your
multipath output, both of the devices consist of two path groups with
one path. This means, as long as there is no path failure I/O will
never be sent to the inactive group.
I guess the only thing you need is a script that might find out from a
given scsi device (like sdc) whether this would be the preferred path
and then print a number that represents the priority (the lower, the
higher). Then use this as priority callout and group by priority with
failback set to immediate.

Regards,
Stefan
