C.5. Debugging and Testing Services and Resource Ordering

You can debug and test services and resource ordering with the rg_test utility. rg_test is a command-line utility provided by the rgmanager package that is run from a shell or a terminal (it is not available in Conga). Table C.2, “rg_test Utility Summary” summarizes the actions and syntax for the rg_test utility.

Table C.2. rg_test Utility Summary

Display the resource rules that rg_test understands. rg_test rules
Test a configuration (and /usr/share/cluster) for errors or redundant resource agents. rg_test test /etc/cluster/cluster.conf
Display the start and stop ordering of a service.
Display start order:
rg_test noop /etc/cluster/cluster.conf start service servicename
Display stop order:
rg_test noop /etc/cluster/cluster.conf stop service servicename
Explicitly start or stop a service.


Only do this on one node, and always disable the service in rgmanager first.
Start a service:
rg_test test /etc/cluster/cluster.conf start service servicename
Stop a service:
rg_test test /etc/cluster/cluster.conf stop service servicename
Calculate and display the resource tree delta between two cluster.conf files.
rg_test delta cluster.conf file 1 cluster.conf file 2
For example:
rg_test delta /etc/cluster/cluster.conf.bak /etc/cluster/cluster.conf
