What is the default value for the ip resource agent's monitor_link attribute in RHEL 5 and 6 High Availability clusters?

Solution Verified - Updated -


  • We have added an IP resource to the cluster service from Luci interface and enabled monitor_link option for it, but the IP resource configuration in /etc/cluster/cluster.conf file still does not show any value for monitor_link option:

      <ip address="" sleeptime="10"/>
  • If the monitor_link option is disabled/unchecked from Luci, then cluster.conf shows monitor_link="0". Is this expected behaviour?

      <ip address="" monitor_link="0" sleeptime="10"/>


  • Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 5 or 6 with the High Availability Add On
  • rgmanager
  • One or more ip resources in /etc/cluster/cluster.conf
