DM Multipath installs some documentation with a sample configuration that lists many different storage systems, including SUN. Perhaps you can find an appropriate or similar configuration there.
# cat /usr/share/doc/device-mapper-multipath-*/multipath.conf.defaults
good idea. unfortunately the sun hardware in those examples are quite old and very different from the ZFS appliance which is really a server with ssd in it connected to a jbod "hybrid" between ssd and standard spinning disks
Nice to see a proper redundant storage fabric layer for once on OTN. ;-)
We've been in a similar position using multipath with a custom storage layer (Infiniband based). Like you we hunted for a best-match config - and then stress tested the fabric layer using fio (Flexible I/O Tester). And don't forget to pull some fibre cables, or shutdown/powerdown one of the fibre channel switches, while fio tests are running.
