powermt display dev=all will show all disk devices and the active paths

as you know, the powerpath software is the EMC multipathing software that you can use to get multiple paths from your HBA's to the LUN's over the SAN...the powerpath software does load balance the traffic
more detailed info look @ http://www.emc.com/microsites/clariion-support/pdf/300-008-341.pdf
as stated above  powermt display dev=all confirm the configuration of the logical device(s) ..check the number of existing paths...the path state should be alive for known good paths and dead for known bad paths. If there is a problem, try to correct it ..

Thanks! Glad I could help.
