Connector for servers running Linux and using Linux's inbuilt multipathing technology.

Should you install this patch?

Install this patch if you are running a recent version of Linux (RedHat Enterprise Linux 6 a.k.a. RHEL6, SuSe Linux Enterprise Server 11 SP2 a.k.a. SLES 11 SP2, etc.) and need to monitor the status of a multipathing setup (typically a server with one or several LUNs mounted through an HBA).
