Description Ben Marzinski 2005-10-17 17:28:22 UTC
This is to track which bugs and features are getting done for U3 multipath.

Comment 1 Ben Marzinski 2005-10-17 17:42:34 UTC
This first list of bugs is simply the ones that only effect the user tools and
multipath kernel module or already have upstream fixes. I didn't include the
(168483) I/O Stats and (170552) Load Balancing because it sounds like there are
efforts on these fronts outside of Redhat.  I feel fairly certain that the bugs
listed here will be in U3. I'm pretty certain that we can also include some of
the bugs that require minor device-mapper or SCSI layer changes like 156378,
156385, 156577, and 168801. If people have feelings on the relative priority of
I'd like to know.

Comment 5 Ben Marzinski 2005-10-24 20:46:54 UTC
Oops. I accidentally put 156609 on the depend list, instead of 168538.  156609 is
basically 169538 (when you create a multipath device, you should also create
devices for the partitions on the underlying devices) plus having those partitions
automagically updated when you repartition. For U3, you will have to reload the
device or manually run kpartx after you change the partitions for the change to
be reflected in the multipathed device.

Comment 6 Ben Marzinski 2005-10-26 22:37:52 UTC
Switched 156691 for 169074.  They are the same bug, but 156691 is public facing
and has no ACKs, while 169074 is private and is on the CANFIX list.

Comment 7 Ben Marzinski 2005-12-20 18:26:46 UTC
Closing this out, since it's done its job.
