Description Gris Ge 2011-04-26 03:29:23 UTC
Description of problem:

Manpage of multipath.conf update request:

Doc-Mulitpath have better clarification about defaults multipaths devices sections of multipath:
    General default settings for DM-Multipath.

    Settings for the characteristics of individual multipath devices. These
values overwrite what is specified in the defaults and devices sections of the
configuration file.

    Settings for the individual storage controllers. These values overwrite
what is specified in the defaults section of the configuration file. If you are
using a storage array that is not supported by default, you may need to create
a devices subsection for your array.

Please also add these notes into manpage:

The priority of configuration in multipath.conf is:
multipaths "is greater than" devices "is greater than" defaults
