-dm-queue-length
-===============
-
-dm-queue-length is a path selector module for device-mapper targets,
-which selects a path with the least number of in-flight I/Os.
-The path selector name is 'queue-length'.
-
-Table parameters for each path: [<repeat_count>]
- <repeat_count>: The number of I/Os to dispatch using the selected
- path before switching to the next path.
- If not given, internal default is used. To check
- the default value, see the activated table.
-
-Status for each path: <status> <fail-count> <in-flight>
- <status>: 'A' if the path is active, 'F' if the path is failed.
- <fail-count>: The number of path failures.
- <in-flight>: The number of in-flight I/Os on the path.
-
-
-Algorithm
-=========
-
-dm-queue-length increments/decrements 'in-flight' when an I/O is
-dispatched/completed respectively.
-dm-queue-length selects a path with the minimum 'in-flight'.
-
-
-Examples
-========
-In case that 2 paths (sda and sdb) are used with repeat_count == 128.
-
-# echo "0 10 multipath 0 0 1 1 queue-length 0 2 1 8:0 128 8:16 128" \
