fence_pve — Fencing agent for the Proxmox Virtual Environment

Description

The fence_pve agent can be used to fence virtual machines acting as nodes in a virtualized cluster.

fence_pve accepts options on the command line as well as from stdin. Fenced sends parameters through stdin when it execs the agent. fence_pve can be run by itself with command line options.  This is useful for testing and for turning outlets on or off from scripts.
