[Linux-cluster] live & standby (primary & secondary partitions) in "multipath -ll"



Hi,
 
 
Below is a listing of "multipath -ll" which are the same across
both our RAC servers (as the bindings file are identical).
 
Currently our NetApp Filer1's load is very heavy while Filer2
is underutilized
 
Question 1:
a) how do we find out which of the device files /dev/sd*  
    go to NetApp SAN Filer1 & which to Filer2 (we have 2
    NetApp files)?  


b)on the lines below with "round robin", what does "enabled"
    & "active" mean or what's the difference?  Does "active"
    refers to the primary path it goes to & when the primary
    filer fails, then only secondary filer took over?

=========================================
