Enterprise Linux Today: Conectiva Updates High Availability System

Apr 09, 2001, 18:17 (0 Talkback[s])

"Conectiva has published several high availability update solutions for Linux. Among these, the 0.4.9 heartbeat, an application that checks if the machines in the cluster are responding appropriately, allowing the service to be always active, and performs corrections in the DRBD, a network disk replication device that obtains online disk mirroring. These modifications can be downloaded by all Conectiva Linux users and are available for the whole community."

"The Heartbeat 0.4.9 main feature is that it is more stable than the previous version, since it was divided into three more specific purpose packages. Conectiva developers have corrected some bugs related to cluster start up process, and the DRBD repair is connected with a problem that happens when the device is used with more than five shared volumes. While the kernel new version is not released, Conectiva is providing a patch that can be used to compile a kernel with the same number of volumes."
