Mulipath / DM-Multipath / Hitachi iSCSI SAN

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


 

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:

Feb 23 18:01:51 ash-db-3 kernel: sd 6:0:0:16: timing out command, waited 7s

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

mpath12 (360060e80100b05f00530286700000008) dm-7 HITACHI,DF600F

  |- 7:0:0:2  sdl  8:176  active ready  running

mpath5 (360060e80100b05f0053028670000000f) dm-29 HITACHI,DF600F
size=1.0T features='1 queue_if_no_path' hwhandler='0' wp=rw
|-+- policy='round-robin 0' prio=1 status=active

  |- 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.
