Even Digimer is metioning this attribute in her excellent wiki

http://wiki.alteeve.com/index.php/RHCS_v2_cluster.conf#central_pr
ocessing


If you have a login account at RHN you may find this article in
their knowledge base

https://access.redhat.com/kb/docs/DOC-26981


Apart from that the only text where this attrib was used that I
have come across so far was an RH doc treating deployment of SAP
on RHCS
But it only appears there in a sample config snippet without
further explanation.
I guess that they needed to activate it because they were using
the RHCS event processing interface?
