Fixed In Version: device-mapper-multipath-0.4.9-100.el7 Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
Read requests sent after failed writes will always return the same data on multipath devices Previously, if a write request wass hung in the `rbd` module, and the iSCSI initiator and multipath layer decided to fail the request to the application, read requests sent after the failure may not have reflected the state of the write. This was because When a Ceph `rbd` image is exported through multiple iSCSI targets, the `rbd` kernel module will grab the exclusive lock when it receives a write request. With this fix, The `rbd` module will grab the exclusive lock for both reads and writes. This will cause hung writes to be flushed and or failed before executing reads. As a result, read requests sent after failed writes will always return the same data.

Rearranging doc text for release note format.

Ben: I'm not finding Mike Christie in Red Hat email, so could you check what the doc text now says, to be sure that the sentence rearrangement doesn't change the meaning?  The only thing I actually changed was to  add the word "multipath" to the summary title, to clarify that this is a multipath bz (in the context of the release notes), but if that is not correct please let me know.

Comment 15 Ben Marzinski 2017-05-08 16:44:46 UTC
This looks good to me.

Comment 16 Mike Christie 2017-05-08 17:29:01 UTC
I'm here still :) Not sure what happened to my email.

This looks ok to me. Thanks Ben and Steven.
