Re: [dm-devel] Multipath not using multiple NICs at once

Hello,

I'm fairly new to multipath and I am having an issue with it not using
all of my NICs. Currently, my node has 4 gigE NICs to my storage network
and the SAN has 8 gigE NICs to the same network and I am attempting to
setup multipath with ISCSI in order to utilize more than 1 gigabit
connection. However, when I use nload to check the network usage, you
can see the traffic hop around the NICs. For example, data would send
for 2-3 seconds on eth1, then stops and starts on eth2, then stops and
starts back up on eth3. All perfectly distributed, but in this setup,
unable to reach beyond the capacity of a 1 gigabit connection.

I have each NIC on a different network (e.g. 10.1.1.0/24 for eth1,
10.1.2.0/24 for eth2, etc.). Netstat shows that the connections are
being made each to different IPs:

(10.1.*.8 is the node and 10.1.*.241 is the SAN)

Here is my /etc/multipath.conf:

defaults {
         path_grouping_policy    multibus
         path_selector           readsector0
         polling_interval        3
         path_selector           "round-robin 0"
         failback                immediate
         features                "0"
         no_path_retry           1
         rr_weight               uniform
         rr_min_io               100
#       user_friendly_names     yes
}

Both servers are running Ubuntu 12.04LTS.

Any ideas?

Probably a routing issue. What is the routing table?

Cheers,

Hannes
