[dm-devel] Re: [PATCH] dm mpath: delay retry activate_path on SCSI_DH_RETRY



Chandra Seetharaman wrote:
Resubmitting the patch with 2 changes:
 1. pg_init_delay_secs was used inconsistently (jiffies and seconds).
    Fixed the problem
 2. Moved the #define to dm_mpath.c from scsi_dh.h
-----------------------
From: Chandra Seetharaman <sekharan us ibm com>

SCSI Device Handlers return SCSI_DH_IMM_RETRY if we could retry
immediately and SCSI_DH_RETRY in cases where it is better to retry
after some delay.

Currently we retry immediately irrespective of SCSI_DH_IMM_RETRY and
SCSI_DH_RETRY. This patch adds a user configurable attribute
pg_init_delay_secs which specifies the number of seconds to delay
before retrying scsi_dh_activate, when it returned SCSI_DH_RETRY.

Default for this attribute is set to 2 seconds.
