What is mdmpd for?


Got "mdmpd: mdmpd failed" in my boot log, it's always the last entry.... what is mdmpd for, an is this harmful to the system?
Can I get rid of this in my boot sequence?

mdmpd is part of the mdadm package and is a daemon to monitor multi-path devices (raid) devices. If you don't use raid you should disable this.

to stop the service do (as root) /sbin/service mdmpd stop

this will start the service while the next boot. so do not forget to:

/sbin/chkconfig --level 12345 mdmpd off

so it will no longer boot this app.
