Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 211405
If groupd segfaults, dump the most recent log information
Last modified: 2009-04-16 18:45:26 EDT
Description of problem:
If the cluster group daemon (groupd) segfaults for some reason, it
just silently ends with no information on what caused the problem.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
RHEL5 Beta 1 with latest cvs code from 18 Oct 2006
Happens only if a segfault occurs in groupd, which is hopefully rare.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. killall -SEGV groupd
No information is given as to what group messages were recently
received and processes.
A log file should be generated.
I've been using a patch for this for a long time, which was
reviewed and acked, but haven't committed it yet. See attached.

Fixing Product Name. Cluster Suite was merged into Red Hat Enterpise Linux for
5.0. In addition dlm, fence and ccs were merged into the cman package, so
bugzilla should reflect package name where those utilities are located.
