NAME

       fence_rcd_serial - rcd_serial fence agent

DESCRIPTION

       fence_rcd_serial  operates  a  serial  cable that toggles a reset of an
       opposing server using the reset switch on its  motherboard.  The  cable
       itself  is simple with no power, network or moving parts. An example of
       the cable is available here: https://smcleod.net/rcd-stonith/  and  the
       circuit design is available in the fence-agents src as SVG

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