Re: [dm-devel] Multipath load balancing?



Some would make a diference between load-balancing and round-robin. The 
currently
available round-robin selector switches paths based on a fix number of 
requests that
have been sent to one path. Quite some time ago I posted a load-level path 
selector
that tries to select a path also based on the number of requests that are 
still being
processed. Unfortunately this also required some changes to the main code 
and
Alasdair hasn't much time to integrate new features.
