Hi Clustering folks!

   I wanted to announce a new open hardware, open source cluster fence
device:

   Node Assassin - http://nodeassassin.org

   After four months and a lot of help from friends at http://hacklab.to,
the first version is done and ready for the lime light! (warts and all)

well.. congratulation!!! I have been looking forward to build something
similar myself, but never found the time.

Thank you! :)

   It fully implements the FenceAgentAPI, including independent sensing
of a Node's on/off status. There is a simple installer and uninstaller
that has been tested on CentOS 5.x and should work on any system
supporting Red Hat style clustering.

Do you think we can work out a merge strategy to be able to ship
fence_na directly withing cluster releases? I´d love to see it
integrated right away.

I've been trying to get in touch with someone at Red Hat do accomplish this very thing. With luck, I will find the right person soon. I designed the software with Red Hat in mind, so hopefully it will be a simple task.

   This is my first "official" open source project, so I would love to
hear some feedback even if you don't plan to use it yourself. :)

I am no hw expert (not any more anyway..) but it looks nice.


   If you don't want to build your own, I am working with an embedded
systems engineer in the hope of having pre-built units available in the
next few months. They will support 8 to 64 nodes each depending on the
model. If you think you would be interested in this, please let me know.
Whether these see the light of day or not largely depends on the
feedback I get.

Well if you get around to build them, please let me know. I am
interested in a bunch of them ;)

Cheers
Fabio

Thank you for the interest! We're hoping to have them ready before too long. If I know someone wants a bunch, it will motivate me to get it done that much sooner!
