NAME

       fence_kdump - fencing agent for use with kdump crash recovery service

DESCRIPTION

       fence_kdump is an I/O fencing agent to be used with the kdump crash recovery service. When
       the fence_kdump agent is invoked, it will listen for a message from the failed  node  that
       acknowledges  that  the  failed  node  it  executing  the  kdump  crash kernel.  Note that
       fence_kdump is not a replacement for traditional fencing methods.  The  fence_kdump  agent
       can  only detect that a node has entered the kdump crash recovery service. This allows the
       kdump crash recovery service complete without being preempted by traditional power fencing
       methods.

       Note:  the  "off"  action  listen  for message from failed node that acknowledges node has
       entered kdump crash recovery service. If a valid message is received from the failed node,
       the  node  is  considered to be fenced and the agent returns success. Failure to receive a
       valid message from the failed node in the given timeout period results in fencing failure.

       fence_kdump accepts options on the command line  as  well  as  from  stdin.  Fenced  sends
       parameters  through  stdin  when it execs the agent. fence_kdump can be run by itself with
       command line options.  This is useful for testing and for turning outlets on or  off  from
       scripts.

PARAMETERS


       -n, --nodename=NODE
              Name  or  IP  address  of  node to be fenced. This option is required for the "off"
              action.

       -p, --ipport=PORT
              IP port number that the fence_kdump agent will use to listen for messages. (Default
              Value: 7410)

       -f, --family=FAMILY
              IP  network family. Force the fence_kdump agent to use a specific family. The value
              for FAMILY can be "auto", "ipv4", or "ipv6". (Default Value: auto)

       -o, --action=ACTION
              Fencing action to perform. The value for ACTION can be either "off" or  "metadata".
              (Default Value: off)

       -t, --timeout=TIMEOUT
              Number  of  seconds to wait for message from failed node. If no message is received
              within TIMEOUT seconds, the fence_kdump agent returns failure. (Default Value:  60)

       -v, --verbose
              Print verbose output

       -V, --version
              Print version

       -h, --help
              Print usage
