fence_virtd — Fencing host for virtual machines


fence_virtd is a host daemon designed to route fencing requests for virtual machines.

Fence_virt and fence_xvm talk to fence_virtd, which supports multiple backend plugins, including:
- libvirt for single-node operation
- Cluster Checkpoints when using Linux-cluster release 3.0.0 or later
- libvirt-qpid for multi-node, non-cluster operation

For compatibility, fence_xvm from linux-cluster release 2 may talk to fence_virtd.

fence_virtd accepts a few options on the command line, but most options are read from fence_virt.conf.


Specify debug level, e.g. "-d99"
Interactively prompt user for configuration information
Specify an alternate configuration file instead of /etc/fence_virt.conf
Do not fork into background after starting (overrides any setting in fence_virt.conf)
Wait for backend to be available (overrides any setting in fence_virt.conf)
