[Linux-cluster] Re: occasional cluster crashes

Hi Lon,

Do they crash (panic), or do they just become totally unresponsive?

One server suddenly becomes unresponsive, like frozen. The second server starts to miss heartbeats from the first. At the moment I have configured manual fencing so the service is not relocated (more explained below). If I remember good restarting the locked machine is not enough, I have to reboot the working one too.

Have you tried getting a stack trace from the console using sysrq? (echo
1 > /proc/sys/kernel/sysrq;  then hit alt-sysrq-t from the console).

No I haven't, I will try this thing too.

One thing that's peculiar is that - if they are locking up, they have to
be locking up at about the same time -- otherwise, one would fence the
other, and life would go on.

As I wrote only one gets locked. The fencing configuration is another problem to me and something I am aware of. I haven't understood very well how it works, looks like I need an external device which manages power. In this case which device and consequently fencing method is more suitable? I am rather confused about this argument.
