This feature provides Sun's implementation of the Storage Networking Industry Association (SNIA) Multipath Management API(MP API). The support includes the following:
MP API common library
Plug-in library for Solaris native multipathing solution - MPxIO/scsi_vhci driver
The MP API common library exports the defined set of standard interfaces. The plug-in library for the scsi_vhci driver enables scsi_vhci multipathing devices to be administered through MP API and its associated CLI, mpathadm.
The SNIA MP API defines standard interfaces for multipathing discovery and administration which enables multipathing management applications to use the common set of APIs across vendor-unique multipathing solutions on Solaris. Sun is supplying a plug-in library that enables Solaris native multipathing solution to be managed through the API and associated CLI.
