ISCSI Multipath issue

Hi guys,

I need some advice.

I have a QSAN NAS XS3326 with 2 controllers. Initially, I configured it ISCSI with Multipath. This NAS has 8 x 10GB ports so I did it individually and configured it.
I manually added each ISCSI Storage individually and made one LVM to handle the storage.

Then I bonded 4 x 10GB ports for each controller in the NAS. However, and obviously at the proxmox level, there's like multipath to the original IPs and thus it shows faulty path.

*I removed some ISCSI storage to see if I can rectify the situation below.

root@imm4:/etc# iscsiadm -m session

Without rebooting the server, how best can I modify these paths and leave just 2 main paths. Being 10.254.16.101 and 10.254.16.105.

Don't want to redo everything again as there are 4 hosts and 100s of VMs.

I removed the bond and got it back to individual IPs. Didn't feel like the bond did much.

How best to iPerf the throughput to the ISCSI NAS? I want to see what the bottlenecks are. Whether the network is the one, the proxmox or the NAS itself
