Error description

  • Scalable Volume Groups use 254 MWC records instead of 510
    during writes.
    

Local fix

Problem summary

  • SVGs are only using 254 mwc rec entries instead of the
    potential 510 that we allocate space for.  The affect of this
    is that for active MWC LVs, you can essentially only be writing
    to 254 LTGs at once instead of 510.  This could be limiting
    performance capabilities with some workloads.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Correct mwc rec size definitions to properly use all 510
    slots.
