You don't, cman does. it's the current "generation" of the cluster which is
incremented for each state transition. Are you taking nodes up and down during
these tests??

It does seem that cman is susceptible to heavy network traffic, despite my best
efforts to increase its priority. I'm going to check in a change that will allow
you to change the retry count byt it's a bit of a hack really.

If you have power switch fencing and the remainder of the node is quorate then
surely the failed node should be powercycled?
