Use the information in this section to understand the Sun Cluster HA for SWIFTAlliance Access fault monitor. This section describes the Sun Cluster HA for SWIFTAlliance Access fault monitor's probing algorithm or functionality, states the conditions, messages, and recovery actions associated with unsuccessful probing.
For conceptual information on fault monitors, see the Sun Cluster Concepts Guide.
The Sun Cluster HA for SWIFTAlliance Access fault monitor uses the same resource properties as resource type SUNW.gds, refer to the SUNW.gds(5) man page for a complete list of resource properties used.
The fault monitor only checks the DCE daemon, it does not check the executables that are part of SWIFTAlliance Access. This was explicitly asked by Swift. It allows the operator to start and stop SWIFTAlliance Access without paying attention to the cluster.
If an automatic failover occurs, it is most likely that there was a DCE problem. The SWIFTAlliance Access application will only cause a failover when it does not succeed to start on the current node.
