NAME

       multipathd - multipath daemon


SYNOPSYS

       multipathd

       This  daemon  is in charge of checking for failed paths. When this hap-
       pens, it will reconfigure the multipath map the  path  belongs  to,  so
       that this map regain 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 it is
       done  with  devmap  reconfiguration,  so that it can refresh its failed
       path list.
