Re: [dm-devel] default_prio_callout in multipath-tools-0.4.5-pre2

Are you talking about the setting in multipath.conf.synthetic ?

If so, it is just there as a synthax example.
Nobody should copy this template in /etc/ without editing to fit its

The philosophy should be :

1. try first with no config file
2. if not satisfied, try to massage a config file
3. when satisfied, submit your tuning for inclusion in the default
hardware table.

For most users, there should only be aliases in the config file.

You're all right, but I fail to see what you want me to change ... are
you saying you find the config templates misleading ?
