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



Hi,

I have been using clustat command. clustat -x -s servicename to get
following XML file -

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<clustat version="4.1.1">
  <groups>
    <group name="service:service_on_node1" state="112"
state_str="started" flags="0" flags_str="" owner="node1"
last_owner="none" restarts="0" last_transition="1294752663"
last_transition_str="Tue Jan 11 19:01:03 2011"/>
  </groups>
</clustat>

I was under impression that "last_owner" field in the above XML file
should give me node name where service was last running. I was parsing
this XML file to obtain this information.

Note that, this holds true if you migrate or relocate service from one
node to another using clusvcadm or from conga or system-config-luster
BUT if node is shutdown and service relocate to another node,
last_owner is either 'none' or same as current node on which service
is relocated.

Parsing var/messages/log is easy but not optimal solution, it will
need "grep"ing entire log file for some specific message where failed
node name is appearing in clumgr messages.
