Fixed In Version: device-mapper-multipath-0.4.9-94.el6
Doc Type: No Doc Update
Doc Text:
*device-mapper-multipath* now supports the `max_sectors_kb` configuration parameter With this update, *device-mapper-multipath* provides a new `max_sectors_kb` parameter in the defaults, devices, and multipaths sections of the `multipath.conf` configuration file. This parameter allows you to set the 'max_sectors_kb` device queue parameter to the specified value on all underlying paths of a multipath device before the multipath device is first activated. When a multipath device is created, the device inherits the `max_sectors_kb` value from the path devices. Manually raising this value for the multipath device or lowering this value for the path devices can cause multipath to create I/O operations larger than the path devices allow. Using the `max_sectors_kb` `multipath.conf` parameter is an easy way to set these values before a multipath device is created on top of the path devices, and prevent invalid-sized I/O operations from being passed down.
