SnapSAN S3000/S5000 Path Manager Linux User Guide

Version 1

    This user guide explains how to use Path Management - Linux to implement path multiplexing between each server and disk array unit in a system. If a fault occurs on a path, the used path can automatically be switched to another path. In addition, the concurrent use of multiple paths can distribute the load to individual paths. This guide assumes that you are familiar with computer hardware, data storage, and network administration terminology and tasks. It also assumes you have basic knowledge of Internet SCSI (iSCSI), Serial-attached SCSI (SAS), Serial ATA (SATA), Storage Area Network (SAN), and Redundant Array of Independent Disks (RAID) technology.
