From the multipath command, I know dm-2 is mapped from two devices /dev/sda and /dev/sdb as expected.

But how can I know if dm-3 is mapped from /dev/sda1 and /dev/sdb1, and dm-4 from /dev/sda2 and /dev/sdb2 ?

The command "multipath -ll" only gives info on mpath0 or dm-2.

I tried  multipath -ll /dev/mpath/mpath0p1 but does not show anything.

mpath0 is analogous to sda and mpath0p1, mpath0p2 are analogous to sda1,
sda2.

since there is "mpath0" in mpath0p1 and mpath0p2, you can be sure that
they are built off sda and sdb (in effect mpath0p1 is made of sda1 and
sdb1 and so on)...


Chandra, that makes sense. Thanks a lot for your explanation.
