Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 170552
kernel dm multipath: Dynamic Load balancing
Last modified: 2010-10-21 23:32:00 EDT
Escalated to Bugzilla from IssueTracker
This is an improvement on round-robin where loading of the paths is used to
dynamically balance I/O's
A short patch has been submitted by Stefan Bader which does this.
It needs reviewing, checking for adverse interaction with iostats patches,
checking for performance issues when the feature is not being used, might have
kABI impact etc.
Possible for U3 subject to review.
Missed U3 so now U4.

NEEDINFO_ENG has been deprecated in favor of NEEDINFO or ASSIGNED. Changing
status to ASSIGNED for ENG review.
I think this needs to be targeted for 5.1
At least it is not a 4.5 topic. Moving to 4.6 for now. Not sure if we shouldn't
jsut keep that to 5?
This consistently arises as a customer request. Still worth having in 4.6
Scoping work effort. Holding off devel ACK until complete.
Too late for R4.6, moving out to R4.7.
Moving to RHEL 5.2
Rob, the bugzilla for this function in RHEL5 is bug 199767. If this only being
considered for RHEL5, just close this bug as WONTFIX and take up the discussion
in the other bug...
Can someone at Red Hat please clarify which releases are being considered for
addressing this problem? This is important for us to know for this Bugzilla
(170552) and also 199767.
Resetting for 4.7 consideration, as it already states in the Version field,
unless Rob you have other comments.
Unisys is giving up on getting changes into RHEL4 in favor of focusing on
Internal Status set to 'Resolved'
Status set to: Closed by Client
Resolution set to: 'Rejected'
