    It fully implements the FenceAgentAPI, including independent sensing

that has been tested on CentOS 5.x and should work on any system

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.

All relevant people were already in CC to my reply :) So there we are..

Wonderful, thank you! (Hello guys! *waves*)

    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 ;)


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!

I´d be happy to get a 32/64 ports setup (if the price is reasonable).
Mostly.. I´ll never have the time to build it myself. Nevermind my
super-rusty skills to assemble electronic components ;)


The biggest slow down will be getting safety certifications so that they are legal to sell. The first version we'll get out the door will be the 8 and 16 port versions. I am reluctant to invest in the 24+ until I know there is a market for it. Mainly because I am bank-rolling this myself and I want to make sure there is decent interest first. However, you can use multiple Node Assassins at the same time, so you would be able to scale out very easily. :)
