AIX LKU - general performance improvement during attach/detach, currently too slow.
Improving AIX Live Kernel Update, with PowerVC, general performance would benefit many clients, but is particularly needed here due to the scale of the environment and the challenges of keeping up with code rollout schedules. Currently LKU is taki...
At the moment the storage subsystem in AIX does not have support for ALUA Standby. Implementing this state would allow larger flexibility in the interaction between an AIX system and the Storage arrays.
lsmpio -q doesn't list the volume name for Infinidat Devices. It does for other storage vendors. Need Infinidat-specific code for lsmpio -q output
The customer opened Salesforce Case TS010299650, noting that lsmpio -q output for their Infinidat storage does not display the volume name. Sample output:
Device Vendor Id Product Id Size Volume Name

ipcs man page, get_ipc_info headers and man page - clearly spell out real-time == POSIX
Our developers always talk about using "POSIX message queues" for their programs. Those don't show up in "ipcs -a", and there's not a lot to go on to think that they're under "ipcs -r" for "real-time". Similarly, the man pages for the get_ipc_info...
Provide standardise approach for lsmpio metadata expansion
Currently there is no public information about what extended metadata attributes can be obtained from the storage to facilitate OS admin manipulation of storage.For example lsmpio -q presents on some devices the name of the volume and there could ...
My storage team flipped out when I started including fabric IDs with my requests for zoning. It's available as HBA_PORTATTRIBUTES->FabricName from HBA_GetAdapterPortAttributes. Not sure why perfstat_fcstat_t wouldn't include it or provide anoth...
