Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 426208
cman man page updates
Last modified: 2009-04-16 18:52:59 EDT
Description of problem:
The cman man page states that broadcast is the default heartbeat mechanism
unless multicast is explicitly chosen. This is no longer true.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. man cman
2. look at section 'Multicast Network Configuration'
Multicast network configuration
Cman can be configured to use multicast instead of broadcast (broadcast
is used by default if no multicast parameters
According to http://sourceware.org/cluster/faq.html#broadcastmulticast, the
OpenAIS-based cman is multicast-only and broadcast cannot be configured at all.
This was fixed in CVS on 22nd August 2007. revision 1.7
ok - so scheduled for 5.2?
I hope so. There are quite a lot of man page changes since that version.
It needs flags if it is going to make it into 5.2.
