Default Mulipath / DM-Multipath / Hitachi iSCSI SAN

*


Dear Users -


I am running a Hitachi AMS2500 with 10GB iSCSI SAN, and I am running RedHat Enterprise 5.7 x86_64bit. I installed Multipath and I am seeing strange issues with the box. Basically what appears to be happening is some of my LUNS seem to go into an enabled/enabled status and I/O just queue's up and then eventually times out. I am not sure why this is happening, it is almost like a LUN goes offline for a bit and then I/O back's up and causes major issues. I noticed in the


/var/log/messages

Also if i just Grep for "timing out" i get:

then when I look at "multipath -ll" i see for instance:


mpath12 (360060e80100b05f00530286700000008) dm-7 HITACHI,DF600F

* |- 6:0:0:9* sdan 66:112 active ready* running
* `- 8:0:0:9* sdap 66:144 active ready* running

So I wonder if somehow I am getting bit by the "1 queue_if_no_path", however not sure why some LUNS are alwasy ready/enabled, and then some go enabled/enabled. If anyone can provide assistance I would be forever grateful!!


Thanks Much.
