Customers are using complex storage stacks such as LVM over dm-crypt over MD RAID over multipath over iSCSI and FC with LOTs of LUNs, and we're facing problems in that area which are usually very hard to reproduce. It's also hard to guard against regressions.

Being able to quickly and reliably set up VMs with various types of storage / multipath is a key part of testing multipath. It's doable, but cumbersome and has a steep learning curve. I want to create easy-to-understand manual recipes plus scripts that are both easy to understand / customize and deploy.

      Hi Martin, this is a very good project. It's very good to have you expert on multipath so that we can get help easily. I also plan to learn about multipath during this hackweek. Maybe, I'm going to ask you many stupid questions, hh

      Enjoy it! Let me know, if you need any help on LVM. I think at least I can help on testing you recipes and scripts:)

      Reanimate this - I've got other projects so I don't know if I'll get down to it, but I find it still interesting.
