This topic describes the categories of information provided in the short status display as shown in the following example of output from the lcdstatus -e command. For information on how to display this information, see the LCD 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 Short Status Display:
Resource Hierarchy Information
LifeKeeper displays the resource status of each resource. The LifeKeeper tag names of root resources are displayed beginning in the left-most position of the TAG column, with tag names of resources within the hierarchy indented appropriately to indicate dependency relationships between resources.
The BACKUP column indicates the next system in the failover priority order, after the system for which the status display pertains. If the target system is the lowest priority system for a given resource, the BACKUP column for that resource contains dashes (for example, ------).
- TAG column. Contains the root tag for the resource.
- ID column. Contains each resource’s identifier string.
- STATE column. Contains the current state of each resource, as described in Resource States.
- PRIO column. Contains the failover priority value of the local server, for each resource.
- PRIMARY column. Contains the name of the server with the highest priority, for each resource.
Communication Status Information
This section of the display lists each communications path that has been defined on the target system. For each path, the following information is provided.
- MACHINE. Remote server name for the communications path.
- NETWORK. The type of communications path (TCP or TTY)
- ADDRESSES/DEVICE. The pair of IP addresses or device name for the communications path
- STATE. The state of the communications path (ALIVE or DEAD)
- PRIO. For TCP paths, the assigned priority of the path. For TTY paths, this column will contain dashes
(----), since TTY paths do not have an assigned priority.
