Thank you for reporting.

Yes, it is one of differences.
istgt reports connected information such as SCSI port to the initiator
for discriminating multipath and failover path.
As a side effect, perhaps more accurate identification is possible.

If you use it as usual, it is tested enough.
If I had to say, I want to know how much a CPU usage on the target machine.
Because istgt is more complicated than iscsi-target.

Did you use the target with ZFS? or UFS?
Did you use MCS feature?
