Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
Cause: qdiskd has an incorrect logging level for the message indicating that the token timeout was incorrect Consequence: If the token timeout was set wrongly in cluster.conf then qdisk just printed the unhelpful message "qdiskd: configuration failed" Fix: Change the message level from DEBUG to ERR Result: If the token timeout is set incorrectly for qdiskd then a more explanatory message: qdiskd: Configuration failed. qdiskd: Token timeout 3000 is too fast to use with qdiskd!" is now printed

Description michal novacek 2012-12-18 13:47:08 UTC
Description of problem:
Having too short totem timeout stops qdiskd from running which is correct but
what is weird that to get to this fact I needed to run manually qdiskd binary
in debug mode on foreground to find it out. It would be so much better to find
this message in /var/log/messages instead of being forced to debug this way.
"qdiskd: Configuration failed" is really not very helpful in finding out what
caused it to fail.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible: always

Steps to Reproduce:
1/ have a cluster with quorum disk and <totem token="3000" /> and try to start it.
Actual results:
Cluster not starting and /var/log/messages saying "qdiskd: Configuration failed"

Expected results:
Having the real cause of the problem in /var/log/messages
qdiskd: Configuration failed.
qdiskd: Token timeout 3000 is too fast to use with qdiskd!

Additional info:
It might be a good idea to just calculate the value needed from given token?
