nl_tenancy number of times NL has the tenancy
but I am not able to find a good description as to what it means. Can comeone explain what it is ?
I am seeing a very large value on these when attached device is a loop device (tape)

This counter is deprecated in FC-SW and only applies to FC-AL configurations.
When a FC-AL device has the tenancy, it means that it has the control of the loop so that it can communicate with another device in the loop. So I would consider a normal behavior to see those counters increase when devs are configured in a FC-AL.
