Re: [Linux-cluster] ip-tiebreaker quotes need explainging



Hi,

The ip tiebreaker is primarily used during network split-brain
situations in a even numbered (2,4, etc.) cluster.  The ip tiebreaker
provides the extra vote (to form a quorum (50% + 1)) to determine who
should be the next/ new master. 

cheers,
Michael
