Re: [dm-devel] multibus / failover and EMC CX600




The mpath_prio_emc with group_by_prio did the trick. Thanks!
 
But I am still loosing the paths to the failed devices. I Increased dev_loss_tmo, but the maximum seems to be about 600 - thus, after 10 Minutes, the paths fail:
 
SANfile_m linux # multipath -l
hcfshare (360060160c820080063502869e459dc11) dm-0 ,
[size=3.4T][features=1 queue_if_no_path][hwhandler=1 emc]
\_ round-robin 0 [prio=0][enabled]
 \_ #:#:#:# -   #:#   [failed][undef]
 \_ #:#:#:# -   #:#   [failed][undef]
\_ round-robin 0 [prio=0][active]
 \_ 2:0:0:0 sdd 8:48  [active][undef]
 \_ 1:0:0:0 sdb 8:16  [active][undef]
If I put them online again, I run into the -EEXIST prob. Async SCSI scanning *is* off in my kernel, so the only thing I could do from here is to try the patch, is it?

Oh, sweet.  This knob won't affect how long the layer will hold I/O
before failing it (like lpfc_nodev_tmo), I assume?  (I'm worried about
it taking longer for dm-multipath to detect failed paths).

I wish it could've been set to unlimited, though.  Seems like there's
always some kind of trouble with re-adding the devices, either I run
into that -EEXIST bug, or udev doesn't do it's job properly and the
revived device isn't added back into the dm-multipath map.  In addition
it somtimes breaks queue_if_no_path with earlier multipath-tools that
doesn't use no_flush on suspend.  Those versions are of course included
in most server distributions...  Sigh.
