multipathd - multipath daemon
This daemon is in charge of checking for failed paths. When this happens,
it will reconfigure the multipath map the path belongs to, so that this map
regains its maximum performance and redundancy.
This daemon executes the external multipath config tool when events occur.
In turn, the multipath tool signals the multipathd daemon when it is done with
devmap reconfiguration, so that it can refresh its failed path list.
This man page was assembled by Patrick Caulfield
for the Debian project. From documentation provided
by the multipath author Christophe Varoqui, <email@example.com> and others.
