You can monitor which sessions have errors by listening on the iscsi 
netlink interface. I am not sure if that is very user friendly. You 
would have to listen for ISCSI_KEVENT_CONN_ERROR events and filter out 
other junk. This does not tell you if a disk has errors though.

For upstream we are working on a more complete solution for 
dm-mutlipath, so it can figure out when session/connections have link 
problems or if a disk is offlined by the scsi eh. But right now, I do 
not think there is any easy way to do what you need.
