Multipath Management API (MMA)

The Multipath Management API allows a management application to discover the multipath devices on the current system and to discover the associated local and device ports.  An implementation of the API may optionally include active management (failover, load balancing, manual path overrides). The API uses an architecture that allows multiple MP drivers installed on a system to each provide plugins to a common library. The plugins can support multipath drivers bundled with an OS, or drivers associated with an HBA, target device, or volume manager. This API can be used by host-based management applications and will also be included in the SMI-S Host Discovered Resources Profile for enterprise-wide multipath discovery and management.  A client of the API should be able to move between platforms by simply recompiling.
