Method to manage path failure threshold consensus

Image Number 7 for United States Patent #8027263.

A system for providing hosts with a capability to determine which threshold rule of a plurality of threshold rules to use based upon threshold consensus. For example, the system would address a configuration case of several hosts sharing an output port of a fabric via zoning and that port being connected to a single port of a storage controller. If one host is executing lower priority jobs and its threshold is much higher than another host with higher priority jobs and a lower threshold, and the storage controller recognizes that several hosts are sharing the same storage controller port, the consensus will be to ignore the threshold of the first host and to use the threshold of the second host to prevent performance degradation in the system.
