Old data?  Try the command 'lun stats -o' and 'sysstat -b 1' to see if the Partner Ops are increasing on any LUNS.

what about for windows hosts. why I am not seeing all optimized paths?

Only the paths to the primary controller (the one that owns the LUN) will show as optimized.  The unoptimized paths are the paths via your secondary controller.
