corosync-qdevice-tool - Man Page

corosync-qdevice control interface.


corosync-qdevice-tool [-Hhsv] [-p qdevice_ipc_socket_path]


corosync-qdevice-tool is a frontend to the internal corosync-qdevice IPC. Its main purpose is to show important information about the current internal state of corosync-qdevice.



Properly shutdown the corosync-qdevice process


Display a short usage text


Display the status of the corosync-qdevice process. The output is described in its own section below.


Display more verbose output for the -s option.


Path to the corosync-qdevice communication socket.

The output is split into a generic qdevice section and a model specific section. Most of the items are just taken from corosync.conf file. It's helpful to note that the Membership node list is the membership list of the current node and should match the quorum node list. Last poll call is the timestamp (in iso format) of the last call to the votequorum_qdevice_poll function.

For model net, it's good to check the Poll timer running state. Internally, model net supports 3 states. Not voting (when Poll timer running is No, which means corosync-qdevice is waiting for corosync-qnetd to reply), voting (without cast vote, it means that the corosync-qnetd algorithm decides that the current node shouldn't get a vote) and voting (with cast vote).
