Detailed Status Display

This topic describes the categories of information provided in the detailed status display as shown in the following example of output from the lcdstatus command.  For information on how to display this information, see the LCD(1M) man page.  At the command line, you can enter either man lcdstatus or man LCD.  For status information available in the LifeKeeper GUI, see Viewing the Status of a Server or Viewing the Status of Resources.

Example of detailed status display:

machine=wileecoyote state=ALIVE

machine=roadrunner state=DEAD (eventslcm detected failure at Wed Jun 7 15:45:14 EDT 2000)

The following LifeKeeper network connections exist:

to machine=roadrunner type=TCP addresses=192.168.1.1/192.168.105.19

state="DEAD" priority=2 #comm_downs=0

 

LifeKeeper Flags

The following LifeKeeper flags are on:

shutdown_switchover

 

Shutdown Strategy

The shutdown strategy is set to: switchover.

Resource Hierarchy Information

LifeKeeper displays the resource status beginning with the root resource.  The display includes information about all resource dependencies.

Elements common to multiple resources appear only once under the first root resource.  The first line for each resource description displays the resource tag name followed by a colon (:), for example: device13557:.  These are the information elements that may be used to describe the resources in the hierarchy:

Communications Status Information

This section of the status display lists the servers known to LifeKeeper and their current state, followed by information about each communications path.

These are the communications information elements you can see on the status display:

In addition, the status display can provide any of the following statistics maintained only for TTY communications paths:

LifeKeeper Flags

Near the end of the detailed status display, LifeKeeper provides a list of the flags set for the system.  A common type is a Lock LCD flag used to ensure that other processes wait until the process lock completes its action.  The following is the standard LCD lock format:

!action!processID!time!machine:id.

These are examples of general LCD lock flags:

Shutdown Strategy

The last item on the detailed status display identifies the LifeKeeper shutdown strategy selected for this system.  See Setting Server Shutdown Strategy for more information.
