[Bug 1057054] Re: poor performance after upgrade to Precise

But it survive a reboot.  several in fact.  I always reboot after major
config changes to reduce the chance of a 2am phone call after a power
outage.  I don't lightly file bugs, it's 3 days and 4 OS re-installs to
get me here.  This was working on Lucid, and required additional setup
for Precise and I found documentation difficult to find.  It's
repeatable, I've been repeating it all week, both on upgrades and clean

Did lucid also use scsi_dh_rdac?  I had no issues there.  Something
changed.  I wish i could help find out what.  Is there a debug flag
and/or log file I can send?

  poor performance after upgrade to Precise

Status in “multipath-tools” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  I had a Lucid x64 server working with a Dell MD3000i with 4 paths and
  worked as expected.  I added the "prio rdac" line to the conf file,
  then upgraded to Precise, and removed the old mpath_rdac line and
  reboot one more time, just to be sure.  I did this based on a section
  in https://help.ubuntu.com/12.04/serverguide/serverguide.pdf

  as a "sanity check" test, I'm doing 'pv < /dev/mapper/dellsas1 >
  /dev/null' (friendly names enabled).  On Lucid i'd get about 100MB/s
  After upgrading to Precise I get an almost solid 768kB/s.  If I
  instead use the 4 underlying /dev/sd* devices, 2 give errors as
  expected, and 2 run at about 100MB/s as expected so iscsi seems to be
  working correctly and multipath not.
