fence_sbd — Fence agent for sbd

Description

fence_sbd is I/O Fencing agent which can be used in environments where sbd can be used (shared storage).

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