Multipath in HP-UX

Post # 1 by MUDBOY » 2016-12-07 10:55


A simple example would be a SCSI disk connected to two SCSI controllers on the same computer or a disk connected to two Fibre Channel ports. Should one controller, port or switch fail, the operating system can route I/O through the remaining controller transparently to the application, with no changes visible to the applications, other than perhaps incremental latency.

Features of Multipath:

* Dynamic load balancing
* Traffic shaping
* Automatic path management
* Dynamic reconfiguration
