Download Description

The Subsystem Device Driver is a pseudo device driver designed to support the multipath configuration environments in the IBM TotalStorage Enterprise Storage Server, the IBM TotalStorage DS family, and the IBM System Storage SAN Volume Controller. It resides in a host system with the native disk device driver and provides the following functions:

- Enhanced data availability
- Dynamic I/O load-balancing across multiple paths
