You could start by decreasing the 'status check' time by
tweaking /usr/share/cluster/script.sh "status" interval:

        <action name="status" interval="30s" timeout="0"/>
        <action name="monitor" interval="30s" timeout="0"/>

Change to:
       
        <action name="status" interval="10s" timeout="0"/>
        <action name="monitor" interval="10s" timeout="0"/>

(as an example...)

You can also make a wrapper script which doesn't do the stop phase of
your rsd script unless it's already in a non-working state (to prevent
stop-before-start that rgmanager normally does):

#!/bin/bash

SCR=/etc/init.d/rsd

case $1 in
start)
    # Should be a no-op if already running
    $SCR start 
    exit $?
    ;;
stop)
    # Don't actually stop it if it's running; just
    # clean it up if it's broken.  This app is 
    # safe to run on multiple nodes
    $SCR status
    if [ $? -ne 0 ]; then
        $SCR stop
        exit $?
    fi
    exit 0
    ;;
status)
    $SCR status
    exit $?
    ;;
esac

exit 0

(Note: rsd will have to be enabled on boot for this to work).
