Openais checks periodically for other split networks in the system.
This option can be tuned via the "merge" option which is set in
milliseconds.  This can be overriden in the cluster.conf file.  Chrissie
can probably describe how to do this - I'm not immediately sure of the

Here is the man page info:
       merge  This  timeout  specifies in milliseconds how long to wait
              checking for a partition when  no  multicast  traffic  is
              sent.   If  multicast traffic is being sent, the merge
              happens automatically as a function of the protocol.

              The default is 200 milliseconds.
