The scsi_watchdog.conf was added to all of my nodes when I did a yum update on all nodes connected to this cluster. I'm not even sure why it's in the /etc/cluster directory and I don't use standard SCSI since I'm using fibre channel. I'm now suspecting that what ever this is, it is the cause of my web server slow down's. I can't seem to find much about this so thought I should ask.

scsi_watchdog.conf is only being used if 1) you use scsi reservations as a fence method and 2) you explicitly state in a sysconfig file that you want scsi_watchdog to run. I'm guessing that neither of these apply to use, and therefore the scsi_watchdog is having no effect. It is disabled by default.

Since that update, the web nodes have been VERY slow, sluggish, barely
responding at times to web requests.

Could that be related to this? I am not finding a whole lot about this on the

What changed?

scsi_watchdog.conf should have no effect. It isn't even uses unless you
configure watchdog (softdog) support for scsi reservations.
