Much of this you can get from: man multipath.conf

a) /dev/dm-15 is the multipath device
b) features is specified in /etc/multipath.conf (0 means none)
c) also from multipath.conf. Some devices need a helper program to switch paths
d) write permission (if known), rw = read/write, ro=read-only
e) prio=1 means all paths have equal priority (const)
f) SCSI address is adapter:channel:id:lun so scsi_host adapter 3, chan 0, target id 0, lun 13 is block device /dev/sdn which is kernel device major=8, minor=208, status active and running
