Re: [Linux-cluster] CS4/ question about load on Heat Beat

cman has a special "two_node" node which allows the cluster to continue with
only one vote. There is simply a race to see which node gets fenced first!

OK thanks Patrick.
So to conclude on this point:
the only way to avoid this problem in the case of
two-nodes cluster is to have a second Ethernet
network dedicated to the Heart-Beat of CS4
(so that this network should never be over-loaded),
isn't it ?
Or do you have any other suggestion ?

By the way, which is the value of timeout on Heart-beat
check ?
and how many times does it try to get the heart-beat
in case of timeout ?

Thanks again for your answers.
