NAME

       ocf_heartbeat_ethmonitor - Monitors network interfaces

SYNOPSIS

       ethmonitor [start | stop | status | monitor | meta-data | validate-all]

DESCRIPTION

       Monitor the vitality of a local network interface.

       You may setup this RA as a clone resource to monitor the network
       interfaces on different nodes, with the same interface name. This is
       not related to the IP adress or the network on which a interface is
       configured. You may use this RA to move resources away from a node,
       which has a faulty interface or prevent moving resources to such a
       node. This gives you independend control of the resources, without
       involving cluster intercommunication. But it requires your nodes to
       have more than one network interface.

       The resource configuration requires a monitor operation, because the
       monitor does the main part of the work. In addition to the resource
       configuration, you need to configure some location contraints, based on
       a CIB attribute value. The name of the attribute value is configured in
       the 'name' option of this RA.

       Example constraint configuration: location loc_connected_node
       my_resource_grp rule ="rule_loc_connected_node" -INF: ethmonitor eq 0

       The ethmonitor works in 3 different modes to test the interface
       vitality. 1. call ip to see if the link status is up (if link is down
       -> error) 2. call ip an watch the RX counter (if packages come around
       in a certain time -> success) 3. call arping to check wether any of the
       IPs found in the lokal ARP cache answers an ARP REQUEST (one answer ->
       success) 4. return error

SUPPORTED PARAMETERS

       interface
           The name of the network interface which should be monitored (e.g.
           eth0).  (unique, required, string, no default)

       name
           The name of the CIB attribute to set. This is the name to be used
           in the constraints. Defaults to "ethmonitor-'interface_name'".
           (unique, optional, string, no default)

       multiplier
           Multiplier for the value of the CIB attriobute specified in
           parameter name.  (optional, integer, default 1)

       repeat_count
           Specify how often the interface will be monitored, before the
           status is set to failed. You need to set the timeout of the
           monitoring operation to at least repeat_count * repeat_interval
           (optional, integer, default 5)

       repeat_interval
           Specify how long to wait in seconds between the repeat_counts.
           (optional, integer, default 10)

       pktcnt_timeout
           Timeout for the RX packet counter. Stop listening for packet
           counter changes after the given number of seconds.  (optional,
           integer, default 5)

       arping_count
           Number of ARP REQUEST packets to send for every IP. Usually one ARP
           REQUEST (arping) is send (optional, integer, default 1)

       arping_timeout
           Time in seconds to wait for ARP REQUESTs (all packets of
           arping_count). This is to limit the time for arp requests, to be
           able to send requests to more than one node, without running in the
           monitor operation timeout.  (optional, integer, default 1)

       arping_cache_entries
           Maximum number of IPs from ARP cache list to check for ARP REQUEST
           (arping) answers. Newest entries are tried first.  (optional,
           integer, default 5)

SUPPORTED ACTIONS

       This resource agent supports the following actions (operations):

       start
           Starts the resource. Suggested minimum timeout: 20s.

       stop
           Stops the resource. Suggested minimum timeout: 20s.

       status
           Performs a status check. Suggested minimum timeout: 20s. Suggested
           interval: 10s.

       monitor
           Performs a detailed status check. Suggested minimum timeout: 20s.
           Suggested interval: 10s.

       meta-data
           Retrieves resource agent metadata (internal use only). Suggested
           minimum timeout: 5s.

       validate-all
           Performs a validation of the resource configuration. Suggested
           minimum timeout: 20s.

EXAMPLE

       The following is an example configuration for a ethmonitor resource
       using the crm(8) shell:

           primitive p_ethmonitor ocf:heartbeat:ethmonitor \
             params \
               interface=string \
             op monitor depth="0" timeout="20s" interval="10s"
