Re: [Linux-cluster] disabling DLM and GFS kernel modules



The nodes were killed as a result of a condition called "AISONLY"
resulting from the ntp timeofday change which caused a change of the
time of greater then 10 seconds.

Totem uses gettimeofday() to determine the time of day difference
between two time periods.  If the time period is greater then 10
seconds, Totem will indicate a network connectivity lost, reform a
cluster, and the higher level software will detect the aisonly flag on
that node.

Then that node must be rebooted to be operational again.

Ideally gettimeofday() shouldn't be used to detect the difference of two
time periods, but instead itimers or something else should be used.  But
for the moment gettimeofday() is used which doesn't notify the user of
ntp adjustments.
