multicast config and behavior. I've deployed a couple dozen 2-3-node
clusters (with GFS2) in three different data-centers with three
seriously different network configurations. Multicast is always an
issue. RH Knowledgebase article
https://access.redhat.com/kb/docs/DOC-39175 has a python script
multicast.py which exercises it from client and server ends. It has come
in very handy. It sounds like it may be an intermittent problem, in
which case I might alter the script to reduce traffic a little but run
it longer-term as a diagnostic. If you're at RHEL 6.1 there is an
"omping" package in the channel/distro which serves the same purpose,
there's some info in the article on its use too. HTH......Nick G

Hi all,

We are trying to get to the bottom of some odd intermittent behavior on
a cluster. We are intermittently seeing nodes leave and rejoin clusters,
without being fenced. Further the gap between leaving on re-joining is 8
minutes. We are monitoring the latency between boxes, and it is
acceptable (<5ms).

How can nodes exhibit this behavior? There seem to be no impact on the
services running on the box, just this leaving and re-joining. The SNMP
messages are below.

All help decoding this gratefully received! :)

Thanks,

Matt
