Has anyone written a guide or blurb about this they can share to save writing something?

In essence, you have 2+ ports on a FC HBA (ATTO or Apple etc) in the inits and go into a QLogic, and have then 2+ ports on the target controllers. Best practice for gaining performance/redundancy via multipath zoning - all ports in same zone, or split into an A-A zone and B-B zone etc.

I saw pgsengstock's thread [url=http://www.xsanity.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=19417]here/url and it jogged my memory about having to write some docs up and worst of all, create the omnigraphs :(

Way back in the early days I wrote this up. Maybe it is still valid:

Interesting, Aaron. I read this once upon a time, and opted to go the simple route instead. Think it'd help with my [url=http://www.xsanity.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=19417]bandwidth issue/url?
