[PATCH] raid/multipath error handling for faulty drives
Hi, I've been looking for ways to minimize the impact of faulty drive in a multipath and raid array environment. Our major problem is that it takes long time before upper layer (dm-mpath, dm-raid or maybe other middleware kernel module by users) can handle timed out i/o because of huge recovery operation by scsi ... 26 Apr 2010 08:02
