Re: [Linux-cluster] Determining failed node on another node of clusterduring failover



Hello,

The Clustering software itself monitors nodes and devices in use by cluster
services, but logs to /var/log/messages.
A quick overview is presented by the 'clustat' command.

Monitoring tools are freely available for any platform.
Basic monitoring in Linux is available with Big Brother, Cacti, OpenNMS or
Nagios (in order of increasing complexity).
If you're bound to windows, maybe try ServersCheck .


Parsing logs can be trivial, once you know how.
What do you want to know and when do you want to know it?

Have you looked at 'clustat' and 'cman_tool'?


Regards,

Kit

Hi

Is monitoring package part of RHCS? What is name of this component?

Is there any other mechanism which doesn't require to parse log/messages to
determine which node has left the cluster on stand by node before failover
is complee?

Thanks
