[dm-devel] Throughput when using multibus



Hi,

I'd like to use my storage in active/active mode. I connected a machine
with 2 FC cables to a switch and connected the FC storage with 2 cables
to the same switch. I expected to get higher throughput from the device
in active/active mode, but I get the same performance like I had without
multipath.

Here's the conf file that I use:

defaults {
        polling_interval 5
        failback immediate
        no_path_retry 3
        user_friendly_names yes
        path_grouping_policy    multibus
}

I see the device 4 times (which is ok):

path7 (3600c0ff000d508d7dff2894701000000) DotHill,R/Evo 2730-2R
[size=82G][features=1 queue_if_no_path][hwhandler=0]
\_ round-robin 0 [prio=4][active]
 \_ 8:0:3:8 sdah 66:16  [active][ready]
 \_ 9:0:1:8 sdar 66:176 [active][ready]
 \_ 9:0:3:8 sdbb 67:80  [active][ready]
 \_ 8:0:1:8 sdx  65:112 [active][ready]

BTW - I see the both FC ports of the FC storage are used, but with low
utilization.

Erez
