Description Jan Friesse 2010-11-25 16:04:38 UTC
Description of problem:
RHEL 6.0 currently doesn't contain any tool for testing IP multicast functionality. This is problem for (specially) Corosync users (so whole RHCS). There is currently bug https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=543938 for creation of such tool.

Tool is now in Fedora Rawhide and Fedora 14 named as omping, maintained by me (FAS honzaf). Original Fedora spec review bug is https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=656855

SPEC and SRPM for review:

Cause:
RHEL 6 repos doesn't contain any tool for checking multicast communications.

Consequence:
This may lead to problems if customer want to use Corosync (RHCS) and their network equipment/OS Firewall is badly configured. Corosync (RHCS) doesn't work and customer has no idea why.

Fix:
Implementation of tool to test IP multicast communication.

Result:
Customer/GSS can test multicast and should be able to find out enough informations to decide, if problem is hidden in network configuration or it's different problem (like bug)
