Veritas Dynamic Multi-Pathing (DMP) records messages to the console and to a log file for certain system events. The events can range from critical DMP log messages to messages available for troubleshooting by Symantec support.

DMP events include:

  • Enabling paths or DMP nodes
  • Disabling paths or DMP nodes
  • Throttling of paths
  • I/O error analysis
  • Host Bus Adapter (HBA) and Storage Area Network (SAN) events

You can view the log level, message, meaning, and scenarios for each DMP event.
