NAME¶heartbeat - Heartbeat subsystem for High-Availability Linux
DESCRIPTION¶heartbeat is a basic heartbeat subsystem for Linux-HA. It will run scripts at initialisation, and when machines go up or down. This version will also perform IP address takeover using gratuitous ARPs. It works correctly for a 2-node configuration, and is extensible to larger configurations.
It implements the following kinds of heartbeats:
Comprehensive documentation on heartbeat is available in the Heartbeat User's Guide. If this documentation is not installed on your system, it can be found at http://linux-ha.org/.
OPTIONS¶The following options are supported by heartbeat:
This option may not be used together with -R.
Note that most of these options are used for supporting the heartbeat init script, which provides the conventional start, stop, status and restart options (among others). It is recommended to use this rather than invoking the heartbeat command directly.
