[dm-devel] anyone using this setup without issues



Here is my setup: (this is ISCSI) going for multipath failover.

Equallogic storage
Qlogic 4052c HBAs (2 ports)
RHEL4.5
device-mapper-multipath-0.4.5-21.RHEL4
HP-GigE switches
/etc/multipath.conf      using failover mode
defaults {
        multipath_tool          "/sbin/multipath -v0"
        udev_dir                /dev
        #polling_interval       2
        polling_interval        4
        selector                "round-robin 0"
        path_grouping_policy    failover
        getuid_callout          "/sbin/scsi_id -g -u -s /block/%n"
        path_checker            readsector0
        prio_callout            "/bin/true"
        features                "0"
        #rr_min_io               2
        rr_min_io               100
        rr_weight               priorities     
        failback                immediate
        no_path_retry           fail
        user_friendly_name      yes
}

Here is the problem:

There is no real pattern to these disconnect/reconnect events. The only setting I'm thinking about changing
currently is the no_path_retry. I'm thinking of making this 2 or some low number. The equallogic shows load balancing
events but they don't always align with the drop/reconnect that I'm seeing on the linux hosts.

Is anyone using these HBAs with equallogic on RHEL4.5 ???
